Testimony by Eddie

This past month, I actually got rebuked a few times. It hurt my pride, busy for class. I severely learned dearly from this is never, ever assume anything, ask questions, listen to all that is being said, and fulfill it to the letter. it turned out to not only be a good lesson, but a character building block of integrity as we all strive for perfection.
