What do you want to do when you grow up? It had been an exhausting day at camp: full of rock climbing, zip lining, horseback riding, and swimming. No one telling you how to live your life and you make your own choices. A democratic society allows for freedom of choice. Living in the democratic society with freedom is better than living in a utopian society because you get to do what you want, pick how you want to live and be free to express yourself.
My choice to become a teacher was not made lightly. This decision was a culmination of a process of reflection about what I wanted to do with my life. I have chosen a career in education because I believe that it is one of the most important functions performed in our culture. I believe that teachers individually and collectively have the ability to not only change the world, but to improve it.
So you want to become a better person. At the same time, who you are today will determine who you are in the future. The way you live your life today determines the quality and experience of your life tomorrow. As independent, self-oriented men, we get to decide who we want to be, every single day. And who we are is a function of what we do , so whether we are consciously trying or not, we are always crafting our future self.
