    I get up at 4:30 AM every day,

    go to work and try to greet as many of my 5,700 coworkers and find one thing about every person that I find special. God only gives me so many days on this planet I plan to enjoy every one if them.

    Laughter.

    I try to keep positive even though I'm in constant pain, I try to smile nobody want's to see a miserable face do they, so I try to hide my pain behind a smile.
