The Debt

‘Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country’–John F. Kennedy

You owe the community where you live something. It may be a gym, grocery shop, school or daycare centre. It may be a book or a seminar that answers the questions of race, inequality and identity that trouble the young people in the place where you live. You owe them something.

Don’t think a second more about postponing starting that business you’ve always dreamed of; putting off a plan that could put your city on the map of the world’s destinations because you feel unworthy.

You are worthy. You can achieve your dreams. You can build that community project knowing that when you build it, people will come. You owe yourself and the community where you live something, and it’s time to pay up.
