Motivate. Dominate.

I’m settled in and in the groove, but with only about 100 days left in South Africa the challenge becomes shaking it back up again. The semester abroad is flying by faster than I imagined. Yesterday was Friday and it’s already Friday tomorrow. What happened to the week?

I followed President Obama’s first 100 days religiously, but now I’m applying the pressure on myself for the next 100 days.

In the next 100 days I promise to pass a comprehensive health care bill in South Africa. Not really, however, it is time for action. It is time to fulfill the timeless Marquette creed, “Be The Difference”.  Let’s mobilize. Let’s make some calls and send some emails. Let’s put on a career fair for high school students. Let’s buy some paint and paint the walls at an Al-Noor orphanage. Let’s raise money to purchase books for the primary school students in Gugulethu and Langa. Let’s do this and let’s not waste anymore time.

These are not campaign promises. There are countless lives to empower and no time to think about a catchy election slogan.
