On Being a Champion

1999-04-Mattie-heartsong-homemade-Books-2-copy-LOA champion is a winner,

A hero …

Someone who never gives up

Even though the going gets rough.

A champion is a member of

A winning team …

Someone who overcomes challenges

Even when it requires creative


A champion is an optimist,

A hopeful spirit …

Someone who plays the game,

Even when the game is called life …

Especially when the game is called life.

There can be a champion in each of us,

If we live as a winner,

If we live as a member of the team,

If we live with a hopeful spirit,

For life …

— Mattie J.T. Stepanek

From “Journey Through Heartsongs,” 1999

About Mery DT

Since January 2018 I can't manage this blog because Ministry of Communication and Informatics of Republic Indonesia has banned this blog. I use 3 (three) as internet connection provider, and it doesn't allow me to visit my sites. I knew, it must be related with my content of blog, especially advocation for sexual orientation. F*ck Indonesian free speech or free writing or free of thoughts. I only can open this blog until my stat page. I see several visitor from Indonesia in my stat. So I have to find out what provider that they use so I can continue to manage this site.
