I don’t claim to be perfect. I don’t claim to be a good person.

I make mistakes. I sin. I break laws. I don’t always follow rules and instructions.

I do claim to try to be a good person. I do claim to try to do the right thing. I do claim to try my best.

I do claim to try to be better, do better, and get better. I do claim to try to improve.

I’m human. I come up short.

I live. I learn. I try again. I carry-on.
