ALWAYS HAVE A DREAM Forget about the days when it's been cloudy, But don't forget your hours in the sun. Forget about the times you've been defeated, But don't forget the victories you've won.

你使我百折不挠! 你使我脱胎换骨!你使我变得更坚强! 你使我成为真正的人! 你是我最幸福的回忆! 你是我终生感激的恩人! 我不是人,我要重塑人的尊严! You make me determined! You make my completely reshape myself! You make me stronger! You make me a real man!
