Hubert Edwards noted " The journey to the actual day was an interesting but revealing and empowering one. In the end it was a special moment with many lessons to learn. The encounters on the journey to a positive thing won't always be comfortable or positive but there is great value to be gained if you take the time to unearth the lessons, lessons on relationships, influence, friendship, ability to lead, purpose and commitment.
