Why? Because life is full of struggles, challenges and beauty. Every step should be embraced and every action should be with intention.

How do you gain a sence of perspective? -Believing that there is something greater than me outside of myself—God. Also, in comparison to the universe, I'm just a speck of dust. I'm only as good as the community, cultures or legacy I lead not by thinking about me and me alone. 

Julian Knox
