Jr.

"One of the great liabilities of history is that all too many people fail to remain awake through great periods of social change. Every society has its protectors of the status quo and its fraternities of the indifferent who are notorious for sleeping through revolutions. But today our very survival depends on our ability to stay awake, to adjust to new ideas, to remain vigilant and to face the challenge of change."

My mission statement in life is similar to yours. To live authentically. Staying awake. There is so much to stay awake to that it is often overwhelming. I seek beauty in life.

That is so very true, but there are some people who don't like to out of their comfort zone,
