    WOW. That's tough. I'm sure you can do it though! Let me see if I can help you in any way!


    Without challenges where would we be? We'd probably be still living at home; we'd never learn to do ANYTHING; and we'd all be little weaklings. Doesn't sound too good now does it? Life's challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they're supposed to help you discover who you are. Challenges make you discover things about yourself that you never really knew. They're what make the instrument stretch-what make you go beyond the norm.

    1. a call or summons to engage in any contest, as of skill, strength, etc.

    2. something that by its nature or character serves as a call to battle, contest, special effort, etc.: Space exploration offers a challenge to humankind.

    3. a call to fight, as a battle, a duel, etc.

    4. a demand to explain, justify, etc.: a challenge to the treasurer to itemize expenditures.

    5. difficulty in a job or undertaking that is stimulating to one engaged in it.


    Andrew Thomas Hughes

    In December 2004, Andrew Thomas Hughes was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL). As a happy-go-lucky three year old, Andrew did not realize the severity of his illness. In fact, to him and his remarkable brother and sister, this was just going to be another "cold" or "boo-boo" that he would fight off. His parents, on the other hand, were rocked by the devastation of hearing their child had a potentially fatal disease. Sensing his "can do" attitude, Mom and Dad took a few cues from Andrew as they spent 2005 battling this dreadful illness.

    Together as a family, they rode the roller coaster of hospital visits, doctor's offices, shots and injections, spinal taps and chemotherapy, hair loss and hair gain, mood swings and weight gain, sleepless nights and unspoken fears. Though it all, however, he rallied like a champ. His illness brought family and friends from afar, making Ashburn, VA a rallying point in the fight. Andrew has never used his illness as a crutch or bargaining tool. Rather, he has worked harder at remaining a normal kid with a normal life. After a brief break from school, he returned to Pre-K and finished this year.

    Thankfully, Andrew is now in remission. His hair is back, blonde and boyish, his weight stabilized and for the most part he is back to his old self. He now enjoys playing street hockey with the neighborhood kids, basketball and Star Wars games along with attending kindergarten at Ashburn Elementary in Ashburn.

    Andrew is truly a remarkable and tough kid and he never ever ceases to amaze or inspire those around him. Friendships have grown stronger, families have become closer, and many have realized unconditional true love. All of this, through the eyes and determination of a four year old.

    All that I have mentioned are things that may help to give you some ideas about what to write or maybe how to start your introduction to your speech. I like to type in things that has to do with "challenge" on google and see what it gives me. You can even try YouTube. That's one way I get ideas for my speeches. I hope this helps you!!
