I really do think this is important...

I put this up here for everybody a while ago but I think it deserves to be reiterated. Since I forgot what day it was yesterday (I swear it didn't even occur to me until about halfway through today that I was supposed to have posted something.) and since I have nothing particularly pressing to share with everyone, I thought this would be a good time to post this as a reminder.

For those of you who were with me then, watch and listen to this video again. For those of you who have more recently come to follow along with me, please, check this out and really give it your attention.

Since you are here, I am fairly certain you can read so follow along and see where this takes you.

It touches me every time I watch and listen to it. I find myself sitting up straighter as I listen to the second half and wanting to find a way to change the world for the better. I am doing what I can in my little corner. Maybe it wouldn't hurt to see what you can do in yours.

What do you think?

How wonderful is it that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world?
-Anne Frank-

Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.
-William James-

The purpose of life is not to be happy - but to matter, to be productive, to be useful, to have it make some difference that you have lived at all.
-Leo Rosten-

As it has become my custom, I wanted to leave you with a quote to think on. Since I couldn't decide on one in particular, I had to narrow it down to three choices. Which one do you think I should have gone with? Or do you have an even better one you would have chosen?

    Thanks Frank, lovely post.

  2. Oh, that was awesome. I really didn't expect for the second half to go so cleverly in reverse. I loved how the same words were used to deliver a completely different message.

    Great post!
