Whenever I'm disappointed with my spot
In life, I stop and think about little Jamie Scott.

Jamie was trying out for a part in the
School play. His mother told me that he'd set his heart on being
In it, though she feared he would not be chosen.

On the day the parts were awarded, I went
With her to collect him after school. Jamie rushed up to her,
Eyes shining with pride and excitement.. 'Guess what, Mom,' he
Shouted, and then said those words that will remain a lesson to
Me....'I've been chosen to clap and cheer.'
