Motto that kept me Going
Haley Graham: " The only reason I'm doing these tricks, is because someone said 'I don't care if this is nuts, and I don't care if it hurts. I'm gonna climb this insanely high mountain. Watch me.' And when you're the first to climb a new mountain in gymnastics, they name it after you. A Gienger, a Rufolva, a Tchusovitina, a Shaposhnakova. They all rocked. And we salute you."
Lesson disguised as a blessing
"...I remember thinking there's foam below you, you can't get hurt..."
"I heard Mr. Paul yell " stick it." The next thing I remember was Mr.Paul pulling me out of the foam pit. My jaw felt like a thousand needles were going in every time I tried to talk or move. Everyone was surrounding me and my mom like always was freaking out. I couldn't figure out what was wrong until I looked down and saw blood running down my favorite leotard."
