A little boy and his mother was at a yard sale. The boy saw a beautiful picture of a log cabin and the White House. Between the log cabin and the white House there was a ladder. The ladder was standing at the bottom, looking up to the White House, was a caricature of Abraham Lincoln.


A little boy who was looking the picture curiously said, “Mommy, what does it mean?”


It means son Abraham Lincoln climbed the ladder all the way from the log cabin to the White House.


Then she added, “Look, at at the line that is under the picture.”


Under the picture the line, “The Ladder is still there.”


There is a ladder for you and everyone, that can take us where we are to where we want to go. All we need is a dream and determination regardless obstacles or circumstances.
