I couldn't bear to tell them after all they had sacrificed for me to be there. My family had such great hopes for me when they sent me to college. But then I lost my scholarship. I was going to have to drop out of college. I was angry at myself, the system, and I guess God. A friend was on their way to a place I hadn’t been in a very long time. He invited me to go with him. I agreed. That's when everything changed. I was reminded again of what life is REALLY all about -- a truth I knew but had forgotten in the midst of my struggle. The place was church. The time was Easter. That was MY new beginning.
