I'm not a fighter, but I fight for what I love.

Mr. Roger Sciarretta
Principal of Carpe Diem Academy
Practically a grandfather to us
Gone, January 17th, 2012

He was a great man
He told me a while back
"You could do any impossible thing,
as long as you believe it's Possible."

Cancer has claimed an important man
As if killing thousands
Of innocent people
Was never enough

Together, We can stop this
Nobody else has to die
Everybody wants that ONE chance
To make it and SURVIVE

But, For now,
Carpe Diem will go on
No Captain, No Leader
No Principal

Rest in Peace Mr. Sciarretta. You will be missed.
