Some may say you're only as young as you feel.
I say youth is a concept of those who have aged.
Some of the people who have made the largest impact on my life have either lost their lives to the life they were born into or lost their lives living life to beyond that which is tolerable. Either way, influential people in my mind are those who never had a chance. Whether it was their predicament or their predisposition that provided the obstacles they inevitably overcame to create the chance that I should know their name is astounding to me.
