A Challenge to the Statis Quo

The comment below has been around for some time. It shows it is from F. Scott Fitzgerald and recently posted on the Chattanooga Writers Guild Facebook page (if you have difficulty reading it, just click on the image). Yet, the quote is actually from Eric Roth who adapted the script for the movie, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons" and the scene is "The letter to Caroline." I am certain Mr. Roth appreciates any reference to his writing and Fitzgerald's.

It doesn't matter who wrote it. It is beautifully written. I love the comments: "see things that will startle you" - "feel things you never felt before" - "meet people who have a different point of view."

"It's never to late ... to be whatever you want to be. ... There are no rules to this thing." The challenge is fascinating because it is an encouragement to all of us, including those of us who are living with a disability (Kennedy's Disease or any other condition). WOW - what a powerful message.
