I said,

mazske the FIRE Wannabee who hopes he can positively impact the world.

Primm so kindly replied saying,

I think you already have.


Thank you, Primm. However, what I did yesterday is already in the past, so I'm looking forward to going into the 9th grade classes come Monday morning.

When I look around me, I see children way back in Pre-K who may benefit from what I'm doing. As well, I see the kids I'm currently working with he may still benefit from my visits as time ticks on.

At this early stage of the game, I feel that if I quit my work, it would stop. The Book 'Em event would did out and my literacy programs would fade away.

However, the longer I do all of what I'm doing, and the more places that pick up on any facet of my work, the more the chances increase that the event and programs will survive.

That is my goal. I want to make the world a better place for my children.

Also, one last rambling thought. Look at it this way.

Currently, we have about 2 million prisoners in US prisons.

What if, over time, we could cut those numbers to 1 million due to 1 million more people getting their high school diplomas?

Out of those million who got their HS diplomas and who didn't go to prison, some would probably go on to do something great.

That greatness may be as simple as they will be around to be a parent to their children.

Or, maybe one of them will become a scientist who will invent something we all need. Or, maybe one will take over my work from me. The possibilities are endless.
