Each week, we’ll hear a new This I Believe essay - this time by Andrew Paradis. He’s a former Marine and a current theoretical physicist/software engineer who lives and works in western Maine with his wife and daughter and their dogs, cats, and horses. He nearly buckled from the stress of caring for his wife when she was suffering from a physical disability and mental illness. But the Paradis found strength in the Corps’ motto of “always faithful” and vowed to never quit on his wife and family. He saw her through the rough patch and now the whole family is happy together again. His essay is included in the new book and audiobook, This I Believe: Life Lessons.
