You Are Worm Food…

wormLife is short!  This point is emphasized in Tom Schulman’s screenplay for the movie “Dead Poet’s Society”

Do you remember this scene….

On the first day of class at Welton Academy, a boarding school steeped in tradition, Mr Keating the new English professor, takes his class into the hall way to look at old black and white photos of the young men who attended the school 50 years earlier.

He said… “We are worm food lads” as they look at the photos. “Believe it or not, each and every one of us one day is going to stop breathing, turn cold, and die.  I would like you to peruse some of the faces from the past. You walked by them many times, but I don’t think you really looked at them.”

“They are not very different from you, are they? Same haircuts, full of hormones, just like you. Invincible, just like you feel. The world was their oyster.  They believe they were destined for great things. Their eyes were full of hope, just like you. Did they wait until it was too late to make from their lives even one iota of what they are capable?  Because you see gentlemen, these boys are now fertilizing daffodils. If you listen real close you can hear them whisper their legacy to you.

“Go on, Lean in, and Listen. Do you hear it” As the boys curiously lean in toward the glass enclosure, Professor Kearing whispers in their ears..

“Car-pe. Car-pe. Carpe Diem. Seize the day, boys! Make your lives Extraordinary!

Since your destiny is yet to be determined, why not make it extraordinary and leave a lasting legacy?
