    That is some pure dedication. I have to admire that young lady for overcoming her injuries and plotting a course of that magnitude. Kudos to her!

    Inspiring and encouraging others, she is miles ahead of those acting only out of self-interest.

    Thriving on routine ... there must be a little more to it than just that.

    Tampa is "west central Florida." Is she a neighbor, Sam?
