“Commitment is the ultimate assertion of human freedom.” – Deepak Chopra
When I was a teenager, my younger brother had a friend who lived a few blocks away from us. He was born out of wedlock. His family was poor and they struggled financially. He was the oldest among three children. He never really knew his dad. Rumors flew that the father abandoned the family when he was just baby. I felt really bad for him because most of the kids in the neighborhood usually picked on him. They viewed him as a useless imbecile.
