Some believe that because the Mayan calendar ends December 21, 20121 that the world will end. I am not making light of the achievements of the Mayans when I say that I do not share that conclusion. I believe that they created a calendar, not a prophesy. The Mayans prepared a calendar that served them longer than was required. Building something to outlast its need is a skill and a value in short supply these days. We modern people should follow the Mayans’ leadership and always deliver more value than is required.

I have learned, on my brief stay on this planet, that an end is also a beginning. Let us take advantage of the world ending concept by remaking the world into a better place.

“Be the change you want to see in the world.” - Mahatma Gandhi

Nobody can predict the future, what we can do is make decisions. Join me and take this opportunity to begin a new world where we think for ourselves, make decisions for ourselves, are accountable for our decisions, learn new things, and help each other.

I welcome the end of this world, so we can work together to grow a better one.
