Five years ago I walked into the Apple store in Penn Square Mall in Oklahoma City in search of a pair of high quality earbuds so I could damage my ear drums in style. Some friendly Apple guy offered to help me find a pair, and after he did he helped me check-out and casually asked what I did.

“I will teach my daughter to color outside the lines, to make mistakes, to take risks, and not be afraid to fail. I will teach her that even when the world tries to knock her down the best revenge is getting up and forging ahead. I will teach her to be brave enough to be different, to stand up for what's right. To never quiet her voice to make someone else feel comfortable. Because no one remembers the person that fits in. It's the one who stands out that people won't be able to forget.” Read More
