Sorry for using the tired old example of "the Glass-half empty or half full?" But at a time when media seems to dwell on issues, problems and crisis after crisis and when political process has ceased to be dialogue but instead is bombast followed by bombast, it is understandable why people consider the future with less than optimism.
I've been working with college seniors and juniors in a leadership training and legislative environment. We've worked 11 hour days in amassing a great deal of information, doing evaluation and rendering critical decisions. I am in awe of their ability to focus and exercise facility of mind. There is also a sense of obligation to a set of core values that underpin their action. I will leave this exercise with a renewed sense of hopefulness and expectation. In their hands, there is a future with capability, and excellence. There is also that horizon bending attribute of youthful potential.
MORE OF THAT
IN THIS WEEKENDER :) VIDEO
A little context-This is by a student and was done for a
school video project. Joe Bush and Zach Hemsey culled the images and wove together this extraordinary timeline.
When I was president/ceo of a documentary and media production company I took great delight in "discovering" young talent, people with skills like Joe and Zach. What boggles my mind is how young these extraordinary visual artists are.
This is a generation that has grown up with gadgets in their hands, and man can they make them work!
See you down the trail.
