One doesn't have to be famous or prominent to live up a dream. For even a lot of great philosophers including every unsung hero I have known would always as lief be remained nameless. Nonetheless, the word "unknown" still plays a significant vocabulary in the hearts of the many. A lot of people have lived out of the lime light all their lives and it didn't make any difference--we all breathe the same air after all. As for me, I still choose the same path even in the years to come.

Those are no ordinary ducklings, they are born wild--undisturbed even in the presence of a threatening situation. Needless to say, one can still find peace not only in the tranquility of the night but also in the midst of annoyances. It begins in us, deep within our soul--neither heart nor mind is bound to what the surrounding dictates. It is always a choice to be at peace with people and environment.
Whether it is a cultural diffusion or a cultural drift, glad McDonald's has his own way--a unique perspective so to speak. I call it a shared worldview out of cultural sensitivity both by an insider and an outsider. Grad school had taught me a lot about Intercultural Studies, but it didn't stop there because reality started the moment I left the training ground as a life-time intercultural educator. I failed a million times--many of which hard knocks occurred. That's how I found something out the hard way. It was actually an agenda to thrive in the end. Sensitivity doesn't limit only one side of the coin--both insiders and outsiders have a part to take.
