About Because I am Here
My world, no matter how big or small, will be better because I am here.
I try to follow the golden rule of writing: Never write anything I wouldn’t read myself. I hope that this blog is infused with incurable confidence that my efforts can make my sphere of influence—my world—better. I believe that I can fulfill my responsibilities as a husband, father, brother, and citizen through thoughtfulness and hard work.
These titles, “Husband,” “Student,” “Friend,” “Citizen,” “Brother,” and others grant me the authority to exercise my God-given power to change my world. I am keenly aware that in the Parable of the Talents, I am the servant who has been given five. With many of the advantages of life at my fingertips, my responsibility is to return with a full ten talents.
