“There is no greater magic than seeing young people getting turned on by an idea and starting to grapple with things. And to feel that kind of energy, to see the light in their eyes and to see them becoming the opposite of apathetic, the opposite of paralyzed, and the opposite of feeling powerless but to be actively engaged in living, and participating, that’s the most exciting thing.”  – Yo-Yo Ma

Don’t forget to be awesome!
