So you see, I’ve learned many things at Degrassi.. but not from the classes, they were too easy. They say it is the journey and not the destination. Well, they are wrong.

Carl Sagan said “Somewhere something incredible is waiting to be known.” And I wish you all good luck in finding the destination in which you encounter the incredible. Thank you.
