All around the walls, the house was bedecked in bright red and yellow floral allure of Christmas imagery and other accoutrements that complete the picture of the special day. The plastic flowers in the gigantic ceramic flower vase looked so real that one had to touch them just to confirm they were not.
Through these moments, we learn who we really are, what we truly believe in, and what makes up our being as a person. It is through these life defining moments that people truly shine, and the true beauty and success in every person can show through. During my senior year in high school, I had thus defining moment for myself.
I grew to love this team and would read magazines about the various players. Jerry Rice, perhaps the greatest receiver in the history of football, was still one of the premier players in the game. Ronnie Lott, one of the most ferocious free
