I don't believe we give young people enough credit. Our hearts and minds are moved powerfully when we are young and have very little power of our own. When we are old and powerful, we find our hearts cold and dull. It is not strange. It is the way of the human race. We must wake up each day and force our old bodies and tired minds to do the work we began when we were young.
We have not changed our minds, or given up, or failed. We have not necessarily grown older and wiser. We are exactly the same as we used to be, only now we have the power to do something about it.
Back then no one took me seriously because I was so young. Back then I had no money, no education, no experience. Back then I was scattered and disorganized. Back then I was selfish and easily discouraged.
What now? My back hurts when I get up in the morning?
