In the Movie St Ralph, Chester and Ralph get in a fight.
Chester: I forged letters for you! I put myself on the line! Ralph: No you did Chester, you've never put yourself on the line!
I know many people on this team put themselves on the line. It was a great feeling and a great semester even though we got last at championships. But, there have been times of lackluster commitment on my part in other areas of my life. Those times are not as rich in my memory. I'm still grateful for the ride though and for the chance to try and to attempt. I'd rather feel failure and commitment than bitter-protection.
