What Does it All Mean?

          Why would someone contribute to a blog, and post on social media? To face scrutiny or draw the eire of those who’d rather not? Are my ideas more important? Do I value life more passionately than others? For sports, why would someone sacrifice life, love, and limb for something you may not reap the benefits from?

          I didn’t know why until I read one small phrase, and those that are not inspired by others, life in general, or ask, “Why should I fill every second of my day while I am drawing breath?" I do because of this:

“That you are here - that life exists and identity,
That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.”

-Walt Whitman
