The day we moved into the van, I read a graduation speech from Mitt Romney. I highly doubt he ever intended his motivational words to reinforce a desire to be homeless, living “in a van,” but they did. With that kind of reaction, imagine what he could have done as President.
“Your world is now breathtakingly large, almost without boundaries. With such vastness and with so many possible directions to take, some of you may understandably feel somewhat anxious and uncertain. You may even be tempted to look for a smaller, more comfortable world, one that’s less complex, and less demanding. That’s not who you are and that’s not what Saint Anselm has prepared you to do. To experience a fulfilling, purposeful life, one thing you’re going to have to do it this: live a large life.”- Gov. Mitt Romney
