President Barack Obama recently gave a commencement speech at wherein he emphasized to the graduates that they should think about doing the work which they have passion for-- to be thinking about what they can contribute beyond that which they stand to gain for themselves, materially or otherwise. Good advice, I think. We all have the opportunity to touch the lives of others, and what we leave behind is an example of how we lived, and the memories in those who survive us. We all have different destinies to some extent, and different lessons that we collect as we live our lives. There is no cookie-cutter advice which will suffice for everyone at all times, that's why we are here for each other, why we are all similar and yet so different. Life is a continual revelation, so revel in it .
