This time needs leaders. That, my friend, for better or worse, means you. It does not mean you need to run for office. It does not mean you need to be appointed to some official board. It means only that you act openly and without shame like the brave man that you are, like the virtuous woman that you are. Honor your boundaries, honor your values. Do not let your values be violated in your presence. Everything around you is your presence, your territory, your place that you are called on to steward as you walk through this life. That is one of the most important societal structures — one’s personal sense of responsibility over the space around him — and one that a bright future depends on you first recognizing.
