“The golden moments in the stream of life
rush past us, and we see nothing but sand;
the angels come to visit us,
and we only know them when they are gone.”

George Elliot

"A bird does not sing because it has an answer.
It sings because it has a song."

Chinese Proverb

"Change happens by listening
and then starting a dialogue
with the people who are doing something
you don't believe is right."

Jane Goodall

"Curiosity has its own reason for existing.
One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity,
of life,
of the marvelous structure of reality.
It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day.
Never lose a holy curiosity."

Albert Einstein


She missed her senior prom last Saturday.

But Sheryl Wolfe missed little else
that life has to offer.

The Mililani High School senior,
a model, friend, daughter and sister,
was to relinquish her title:
Miss Hawaii Teen United States
early next month,
but there was so much more to look forward to.

Partial to the beach, to her modeling,
and to athletics,
Sheryl always felt especially drawn to
those with developmental disabilities.

"She had a special place in her heart for them
and was thinking of a career
along that line,"

her father, Alan, told a reporter.

But life is what happens
while we are busy making other plans.

Last week,
Sheryl collapsed in class
and was rushed to Queens Hospital.

A stroke had felled this young girl.

Her organ donations
are her gift
to four Hawaii people
who will now be able to
with this life
thanks to the choice
that she expressed on her driver's license. . .

"She was just so loved and full of energy.
She always has been that person who was
there for you in a second,
the most important friend
I've ever known in my life."

School Mate Laura Bunner

None of us is guaranteed one day more.

It is called the
