DIP Episode #44: The Dream is Still Alive
Too often people in my age bracket (50’s) berate the current generation on their sense of entitlement and radical stance on things that tear down rather than build up. To be honest, this does exist, but to what extent and why? The answer lies in the people who molded them. Was it the pussification of America perpetuated by parents, so-called mental health experts, school curriculum, Washington law makers or social media? The answer is all of it. So, for just a moment I want to cut them some slack.
Say hello to Suraj Patel. A few months ago this 26-year-old man reached out not me on social media after hearing my podcast and took a chance. He asked to be a guest and I thought “That’s cool. A young person with initiative”. It piqued my curiosity and I immediately said YES! Suraj represents the next generation of Americans who love this country and will let his hard work and experience do his talking. Fortunately for us we get to hear his words of hope, perseverance, failure, triumph, love, and family. It is so refreshing to know the future of our country is, in part, in the hands of a man worthy of the American Dream. Check out what he has to say.
