This week, Calen proposes the following challenge: If you were to tell this boy what you value most in life,what would you say?
I would tell him that above all individualism is the most valuable asset anyone can possess. Do not be a conformist. Do not go along with the status quo. Be your own person. Obey the rules of the land in so far as they are just and constitutional. Otherwise, fight for your individual freedom.
I would tell him to seek out what he is most passionate about and work wholeheartedly toward his goals. Not to allow anyone to tell him he is not worthy or good enough.
And finally, I would tell him to live an honorable, loving and compassionate life. Be noble in a world of wolves.
