You are going to die.

Few try to change the world during their brief tenure, fewer still try to change it for the better. Few step into the arena and spend themselves for a worthy cause. From the moment you come kicking and screaming into this world, you’re dying. By the time you’re “educated” with a college degree, you’re already 1/4 of the way out the door. What side of human progress are you?

It’s inspiring to know people like Alex Peake. We’re all capable of being catalysts of change in our environments; what have you done to change the world this month?
