Find Your Voice As A World Citizen


by Christiane Amanpour - 2008

As I look out at you, my most fervent hope for you is that you find something that sets you on fire, that gives you passion and joy, something that you love and believe in so much that it makes you want to work all day and all night, something that will make you willing to sacrifice, something that instills in you a deep sense of commitment and a sense of mission, something that will eventually demand your courage, your physical, your moral, your emotional courage. And you won’t know when and you don’t yet know how, but you will be called upon to take a stand, to be very brave at least once, maybe several times on the road that you take ahead.
