No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.

We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.

(Dead Poets Society, 1989)

Dear Tyler Ennis, 

You only had 4 seconds to save the world…and you did it. Your heroic buzzer beater and dramatic peak in life has caused me to think of other things you can do in 4 seconds. Here we go: 

1. Have my children. 

2. Turn down for what.

3. Tell the Pitt head coach that he looks like an evil banker. 

4. Act like an animal inside and outside of Pitt’s “zoo”….do we need a membership? Is there a zoo ranger I could speak with? 

5. Coin yourself your own nickname because you have that kind of power right now, in this moment. Okay.. Enny it is then. 

6. Move a mountain. 

7. Cross the Swiss Alps. 

8. Save a kitten that is stuck in a tree…that is on fire.

9. Be honest with Jerami Grant about the way he spells his name. 

10. Blindfold yourself next time you make a shot like that to try and challenge yourself. 

Way to go Enny!

Fondly, 

An Orangewoman
