ABSTRACT
In this article, the author discusses an important lesson he learned while taking a class in differential calculus in college. The author relates that though he found the course hard to comprehend and initially flunked it, he learned that if there is a will, there is a way. The author mentions that the board of directors of First Responder Network Authority may experience days like the ones he had in his calculus class but believes they will find a way to accomplish their complicated task.
