My point of view throughout this entire experience is that many of these kids do not act upon their potential, and blame the system for their misfortune. If they just harness that energy into developing new ideas to improve their life, the phrase “if life gives you lemon you make lemonade” is true in this situation.
I interviewed a kid which has an open mind, but has decided to drop out of high school. To me, that is just plain stupid. If your life is already in a difficult situation, why add to the problem by not getting educated?
Some believe this will not change anything in Washington or Wall Street for that matter. What we must do, is use what we have an make something out of nothing.
A Greek philosopher by the name of Epicurus once said:
“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; but remember that what you now have was once among the things only hoped for.”
Also Prime Minister said:
“If you are going through hell, keep going.”
Sir Winston Churchill
You must follow what you have and do things that only you can overcome with your current situation, because only you understand your situation.
