Wisdom from Miss America

In the light of the recent demise of Michael Jackson, I am reminded of what Tara Dawn Christensen, Miss America 1997, wrote sometime ago:

"Let me save you some time -- you can't have assurance in the world; you can't find it in riches or success; it's not found in an address like Hollywood, Broadway, Wall Street, or Washington DC. The road to success and personal happiness is littered with those who have tried that route and failed. Just examine the lives of Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, or Nirvana's lead singer, Curt Cobain. Personal happiness is attainable only when you turn your life over to the One who loves you the most -- Jesus Christ." [Emphasis added.]
