Robert Hoge has an extraordinary story to tell that truly does begin from the moment he was born. From medical complications stemming from medication taken during his mother’s pregnancy, Hoge’s legs were in need of almost immediate amputation, and he was born with a tumour smack bang in the middle of his face that pushed everything else outward from their original position. But what makes Hoge and his family’s story truly remarkable, is just how damn normal his life was 90% of the time.
Role Model: “noun; a person looked to by others as an example to be imitated”.
A role model is a source of inspiration, an aspiration, someone that encapsulates everything you dream to be, and everything you want from life.
Role models come in such varying degrees, because everyone chooses someone different to look up to.
Role models can also be the ones that help you realize that who you are is all that you need to accomplish great things in life.
We choose our role models based partly on who we are, and part based on who we want to be.
I am writing to you today in reaction to your words to the media following the visit from Tony Abbott yesterday, and also in reaction to learning about the morals, or lack thereof, that you and your institution promote.
Your schools statement of faith reads that “homosexuality and specific acts of homosexuality are an abomination unto God, a perversion of the natural order and not to be entered into”.
