When others talk about their professions and the reasons behind their choices they say things like, "I want to help people." or "I want to entertain people." or "I think it'll be good for me because I'll get to work with people." I think we sometimes forget, though, that there are PEOPLE all around us. We walk by people every day and don't even give them a second thought. Do these worthy people suddenly appear once we reach adulthood? Do those around us now not count? If you want to do something for people, or impact people, or reach out to people, why aren't you doing it now? People aren't these magical entities, just waiting for the day that you get your college or high school degree. They are everywhere-needing you and whatever gift or passion that you have. In looking at the grand scheme of things, don't forget the people in the present and don't neglect their needs.
