Life is not always fair. In fact, it can be downright cruel, and you may not even live as long as you expect. So live for now and be the best you can be, to yourself and others.

That's the message 38-year-old Beth Castlevetre of Springfield Township brought to students Thursday at her alma mater, Lexington High School. Beth has the terminal illness ALS, better known as "Lou Gehrig's Disease".

She also urges young people to accept and embrace the differences in others. Beth Castlevetre's brief speech drew a standing ovation from her audience of Lexington freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors.
