This is one of the most profound influences on my life. It encompasses many many different people. I thought the effort to write a post long enough to include everyone I wanted would be way too long to expect anyone to read. So I decided to try and just record a video addressing each person quickly off the top of my head. The result is a video so long I had to split it in two. I cover the school system at large in the first, and my graduating class specifically in the 2nd.
I totally recognize the inherent narcissism in this entire blog. But the point of this blog series in general is to recognize the importance influences on my life, and in this post particularly, I am explicitly expressing my gratitude and appreciation for my fellow students and teachers. Much of the results of their influence was unknown to me at the time and some of it only apparent by going through the process of doing this blog . So while it’s a bit of a time commitment, I would hope that the people in my life get to see the good they have done for me and get the recognition for doing so. And I hope they each realize the impact they had on just one person and then they can recognize the massive impact they have had in the world when you can multiple that by all the people they have touched in their lives.
