Will: I messed up on the midterm exam. I guess I can't graduate with you this year!
Vickie: You can still make up for it by doing well on the final, can't you?
Will: I can't do it. I'm not good enough.
Vickie: Umm. I believe this story I read in the China Post a few days age will cheer you up: A one-limbed student is going to graduate from UCLA!
Will: What do you mead "one-limbed?"
Vickie: She lost both legs and an arm when she was eight because of bacterial meningitis. Next week she will graduate from college, and she plans on becoming a pediatrician!
Will: Impressive. She kept her chin up and never stopped striving for her goal. You're right. I shouldn't give up so fast. I'd better start studying for the final, though!
