Do the Things You Know You Should Do
By: Russell Hellin, 17, Sachem High School, NY 1998
There is so much to tell, but not enough time to tell it. I could write forever and everything I could want to say can't all be said. That's the first thing that must be said, there's never enough time to do what you want to do. So, do the things you know you should do. Let you feelings be your guide, and never let anyone tell you that you are wrong to feel any particular way. A feeling is an original emotion, and no matter what technology there is in the future, no one will ever clone it. Technology of the future may be greater than any one of us could imagine now, but the human brain is the best processor there is. Nothing compares to it, nothing ever will. The human brain needs constant stimulation or it doesn't work as well as we'd like. Nobody knows there own potential. When you think you've reached it, you are wrong, because if you think you have, your potential has just increased by tenfold. The worst thing you can do is lose focus of what's important to you, what ever it may be. For me, right now, it's telling you what the next generation needs to know. I realize I'm writing this all in tangents, but I guess that's life, life is full of tangents, and you have to choose which ones to go down and which ones to pass up on, because you will never get to them all.
