A Fresh Perspective

Edgar's picture
By Shawn Brubaker.
At the Cordell Chamber of Commerce Banquet, Lavern “Straw” Berry, the entertainment, made decisions the theme of his show. He asserted that where we are in life is a direct result of the decisions we make, which he then followed with a catchy poem about roping a bear. Roping bears aside, Straw hit the nail on the head. We control our own destinies. If I didn’t believe that, I would have given up a long time ago. One of the biggest decisions I made in my life was to commit to track and field in college. My experience there would shape my world view, and prove Straw’s assertion to be completely true.
