In our hearts, I believe we are all Lions – yet we have created a society that rewards sheep. Those who color inside the lines. Those who do not buck the status-quo. Those who do not dare think for themselves – for fear of being ridiculed and cast out from their herd. I fear this conditioning into conformity… will eventually be the end of all that is good in us. The final extinguishing of a spark that once burnt so bright… now slowly, tragically fading into darkness… but there is still hope – there is always… hope.
