When I think of a great person or a great human being, I think of someone who fights for the future. Not in terms of “fighting to insure they have a future, ”but to fight for the future that is truest in their mind.
For example: We see scientist who research for decades to develop something wonderful like medicines, or vaccinations. They research in hope that the goal that lies somewhere in the future becomes reality. Or when political leaders urge for certain laws or decisions that does not seem good at first but later leads the country to prosperity and happiness.
Then that poses the question, do we fight for our future? The future that we wish and work to create for others and ourselves?
