Justin Korda’s segment of “The Peoplehood Papers 8,” highlights the importance of taking risks and explains how we can gain from bold decisions we make when we’re open-minded. I believe that taking risks is essential as long as it is coupled with reflection. Taking risks allows us to personally and professionally advance, improve, and change for the benefit of everyone. Korda writes that, “if we want to harness the creativity and passion of young people that want to build our community in their own image, we must take risks.” We have to be a good example for the younger generation and starting Areyvut has allowed me to see just how true that is. We must have faith in the youth within our communities and help them to reach their utmost potential. As Wayne Gretzky has said, “you’ll always miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” We have to be in it to win it.
