did you know what you wanted to be when you grew up?
seems some people are born knowing. and then there are the rest of us.
mollie knows. at thirteen she already knows she wants to be a designer.
our world needs more people who seek and find and make beauty.
we need lovers of the light to show us the way out of the darkness.
mollie fills me with hope for the future. she is already my hero and this is her home...
our world needs mollie and our world needs you.
we need you.
think about it this way,
if you were meant to cure cancer or write a symphony or crack cold fusion and you don't do it,
you not only hurt yourself, even destroy yourself,
you hurt your children.
you hurt me.
you hurt the planet.
you shame the angels who watch over you and you spite the Almighty,
who created you and only you with your unique gifts,
for the sole purpose of nudging the human race one millimeter farther along its path back to God.
creative work is not a selfish act or a bid for attention...
it's a gift to the world and every being in it.
don't cheat us your contribution.
give us what you've got.
