Everyone born in this world has a unique role that only he or she can fulfill. Were this not the case, we would not be here. The universe never acts without cause; everything invariably has a reason for being. Even the weeds people love to loathe serve a purpose. I might even say that every cherry blossom has its own personality, a purpose and meaning in life that is unique to it–as do the plum, peach and damson.
