“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
I want to repay my debt. I am indebted to all of the people who have taken a chance on me in one form or another. At most of the major crossroads in my life there has always been someone – at times a stranger – who has helped me. Some made personal sacrifices like my father, who worked every weekend to make sure that my sisters and I could afford college. For others it was the gentle push of a casual remark that challenged my thinking or a suggestion that I try something I thought was impossible. I would not be the person that I am today without all of them. So, in this life, my goal is simple: to live in such a way that I can recognize when someone might need an extra hand, and to help others see that they may have a few debts to repay as well.
