Ettele Toole's Graduation Gift - Page Text Content

BC: As college begins: Be strong. Be intelligent. Smile! Know that beauty has everything to do with how you feel about yourself and nothing to do with looks or other people's opinions. Never do anything just because everyone else is if you believe it's wrong. Always be true to yourself. Expect the best from life and that is what you'll get. Learn from your mistakes and failures. Believe in magic and wish on stars. Love, trust and be compassionate. Dance, laugh, sing and cry when you want to. Stand up for what is right. Don't allow yourself or people around you to tolerate prejudices of any kind. Don't be afraid to try something new. Never apologize for being a woman or yourself. Never forget that I love you more than any other person in the world. No matter how far apart we are, you will always be in my heart!
