To sum everything up, this word is the “why” to just about everything in my life. I like to believe that everything I’ve done has either been a result of it or a result of not having it. At times it makes me feel young, and to many, idealistic. I’m okay with that; it is something I hope to never lose, and more importantly something I will fight to keep.
I try my best to instill this idea into my students, my friends, family and coworkers. I do this because they inspire me and sometimes they may not even know it. Take a casual look around, and hopefully in the process I’ll inspire you.
