So far this semester has been challenging, not just academically but also emotionally. In several of my classes we’ve been tackling the issues of poverty and racism. Obviously these are not new to me, but the way we have been talking about them, the context in which they are being presented, it has lit a fire in me. I have always had a passion for caring for people, a desire to help those in need and fight for those who can’t fight for themselves. I was really not excited about coming back to school this semester but I believe that God has been speaking to me everyday. I believe I’m supposed to do something about these tragic issues that we’ve been discussing in class and I want to do something about the statistics we’ve been looking at. My prayer is that this passion doesn’t fade, that God gives me clear direction and focus so that I can do my part to change the world.
I want to live with passion.
