‘The future does not belong to those who are content with today, apathetic toward common problems and their fellow man alike, timid and fearful in the face of new ideas and bold projects. Rather it will belong to those who can blend vision, reason and courage in a personal commitment to the ideals and great enterprises of society.’
- Robert F. Kennedy (1966)
I am no longer content with the security of today, the ease of pattern, the predictability of tomorrow. As it stands, I make no difference, I change nothing, my voice has no impact. But that will soon change. It is time to be part of the revolution, to give volume to those without representation, to give guidance to those without direction, to give support to those without purpose. My dreams are not 9-5, my dreams are not behind a desk or guarding a door, my dreams are not based on a biweekly paycheck… My dreams are based on the safety and happiness of others. I will spare my dollar to see someone smile, and I will risk it all to give someone a chance. Over the coming days, I am going to reassess my current standing, and I am going to revive some old plans. TCOP, NDRC, PEER, STP, PRP… These are all just letters now, but soon they will have meaning. Life is too short to spend my most valuable years exploited for a company’s profit, it is time to again take some risk to make some change.
