Imagine for a moment with me: when we are born we are not quite sure what our purpose will be in our lifetime. We are not sure at what age if ever we will find our purpose. What if we get chosen, what if we don’t have to say in what our purpose is? Imagine being chosen to do something you have no knowledge of. Imagine Mr. Don “Campbellock” Campbell (The Father of Street Dance to some) Imagine being trained by a spirit to do something that would influence millions of people all over the world no matter what their race, creed or color. Imagine that and you didn’t even know it was coming. Imagine being the vessel that is chosen for that task. Imagine being used even though we are imperfect. Imagine being chosen to do something that, NATIONS, WORLD POWERS, WARS, and RELIGION has failed to do. Imagine having it on your resume that you contributed to uniting the world through the ARTS. Imagine that. #Respect
