Our Ancestors Are Pushing Us Forward

1. Confront 2. Educate 3. Build

We are limited to the boundaries of our vision. Without a vision the people will surely perish. I envision us being the head and not the tail. I envision us being above and not beneath. I envision us having the discipline to leave an inheritance for our children's children and a legacy for our descendants.
