During office hours with Dr. Verrell, we discussed the

    VETERINARY MEDICINE AS A CAREER Working with animals has been a dream of mine since childhood. I was raised next door to the town veterinarian, Dr. Murphy.

    Without Knowledge, Life Would be Worthless The quest for scientific wisdom does not progress too far; rather, it is merely at the origin of upgrading society. Because knowledge is a concept most important to the establishment of any society, it is the building block of the future.

I didn't know what real pain was until I tried to understand what this child went through. Everything that meant anything to him, his family, those who should be the closest, was drowned out. He didn't know what to think and so often in the world today, we are naive. We don't have a clue of how life could be, and of how lucky we truly are to have the kinds of backgrounds that
