…the Castros, Kennedys, Caesars, Khrushchevs, Nat King Coles or even the Kardashians, there are millions who remain nameless, unknown and unseen. Since the dawn of our species, they’ve been born, played their parts, spoken their lines, and exited the stage. The supporting cast of millions…the “you’s and me’s” (unless someone famous is reading my little blog).

What does this say? It says that no one out there beyond your circle of influence, your friends and family and colleagues, gives a rat’s ass about you as an individual. So it is within that circle, those we know and love and care about, and those who know and love and care about us, that we need to create meaning and value.

Those who cannot do this are perhaps the desperate ones…because eternity is calling us all.
