We all have those things that even in the midst of stress and disarray, they energize us and give us renewed strength and purpose. These are our passions.
I could enjoy the life that I had by virtue of the educational attainment that my grandparents and parents had pursued. Education was always incredibly valued in our family.
As our values are the core to who we are as human beings, they are also the easiest way to identify and connect with others in meaningful ways. Think about it - most political campaigns are based around values. Barack Obama's 2008 election campaign galvanized millions of youth behind two very clear values - hope and change.
The single most powerful element of youth is our inability to know what's impossible.
