When the storms come and the volcanoes erupt and the ground shakes and the Earth is covered in destruction do you think there will be any place that will not feel its effects?  Any town on the northern plains of humanity that will not yield to nature, but instead thrive?  A mailman, still making his rounds through the cheerful streets.  A plumber, still fixing the pipes of the many warm homes.  A police officer, directing traffic through the busy main intersection.  A seamstress, mending the clothes of the thankful populace? 

Even among the worst ruin imaginable, there will also be those who pick up the torch of civilization and carry on.  There will always be those among us who strengthen us, carry us, and provide for us.  There will always be champions among fighters, heroes among soldiers, leaders among men. 

There is a road to success and on it lies us all.  Some of us will lead the charge while others will fall behind and be swept away in the wind.  The true task we all face is not how fast we may travel but whether we are traveling.  So push forward, no matter the circumstances, but above all, inspire those around you to do the same.
