People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle.
But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child -- our own two eyes. All is a miracle.

only a select few march towards you and become even closer friends.
I’m LeBron James, from Akron, Ohio, from the inner city.

To find the universal elements enough;
