"As I stumble through this life, help me

create more laughter than tears,

dispense more happiness than gloom,

spread more cheer than despair.


Never let me become so indifferent that I

will fail to see the wonder in the

eyes of a child or the twinkle in

the eyes of the aged.


Never let me forget that my total effort

is to cheer people, make them happy

and forget at least momentarily all the unpleasantness

in their lives and in my final moment may I hear you whisper:

When you made my people smile,

You made me smile.
