As a man craving for it means to be a hero I look to answer some new fundamental questions of our youth generation. There not that much difference between the age old questions of our forefathers and the ones asked by my generation on understanding our existence. To be more precise when I ask myself why am I here on this earth I say its because I want to save the earth. Now just to clarify this dosent mean I going dawn my cape and become superman. No it means that on a practical level. My goal in life is leave the world better than I found it, or to keep the pieces together if necessary. To incorporate this with my major I have used my studies to learn how best to and where I want to apply what I know to make the world a better place.
I don't know about you but I am certain that I hear to much talk about the "left" and the "right" in this country as if the only expression of political ideas is through our dominant political parties.
