    "The past links to the future in which we must not regret. The past brings happiness into the future in which we must not regret. The past forms who we are in which we must not regret. If we regret we're not only hurting ourselves but the future, our friends and our environment around us. If you regret we begin to feel no confidence in ourselves. We're so scared of the future we hold back, in which all this was linked from regretting. Yesterday is the past, tomorrow's too far to look ahead ,but today is here for you to enjoy."
