Changing your stars
There’s a line from the movie A Knight’s Tale when William Thatcher (played by Heath Ledger) is being sent away as a boy presumably because his dad can’t take care of him. His dad tells him to “change his stars” and William asks if it can be done. His dad says “Yes William. If he believes enough, a man can do anything.”
For lots of people, including myself, “changing your stars” is about survival and money is a requirement. When you constantly have to stress about food, shelter, safety, and basic necessities you cannot live.
Tech is an answer for many of people seeking to change their stars. It can give the freedoms they never had and provide for them to live.
Be kind to people you work with. You never know where they came from or what motivates them to be here. You don’t know what they’re going through, and a kind word can go a long way.
