Our Time. Our Legacy.

As I sit here and reflect on the life and legacy of great men before me, I wonder where is my place in history. Legacy is defined as something that has come from a predecessor or the past. Now, to the brothers and sisters of my era, I have some questions that we must carefully consider and decipher in order to begin to leave our mark on history.

How much longer will we hinder each other’s growth by backstabbing and isolating ourselves from one another by abusing the ideology that our respective organizations were built upon?

When are we going to see that the only ones to change our circumstances are us and us alone?

The old times and the old timers have paved the way. Now the torch is in our hands. The past is no longer running for us. We must take hold of the present for the future and win this race. Look at the times, my brothers and sisters.

When are we going to grasp the opportunities available to us to actually make a difference? And not just for ourselves, but every young person like us.

Look at the play that was put in place from day one: if you break up the household (family), a race or a country of people crumbles.

How much longer are going to be a character in their book, rather than write our own story?

The time is now. The stage is ours.

How will you perform?

What will be the impact of your performance.
