Though things may seem dismal and the idea of America as a land of opportunity may seem like a distant memory, nothing could be further from the truth. For all of the young people taking the time to read this site (and perhaps those not so young), remember that while you may be subjected to constant negative impressions, cynicism, and revelations of the ugliness in the world, there are so many positive, beautiful things for you to learn about and see. I truly believe that the beauty in the world far outweighs the ugly and that the vast majority of people all over the world really want to do what’s right and are really good people. While it may be easy to dismiss any possibility of good in people by referring to all of the nonsensical blather passing for news these days, always remember what I’ve said above. If you need inspiration, I would urge you to read about our nation’s history from an objective standpoint and with an open mind. You’ll find that America really is a great nation filled with good people that has done truly incredible things throughout her history. Your job is to become a part of the good that still remains to be done. Best of luck—I know you can do it!
NOTE—I will be including a leadership manual for young people as a PDF on this site as well as a free PDF download of my next novel when it’s completed in the near future. Until then, best wishes!
