Interview – Drew and Julia


The Golden Rule


“My advice to people or words of wisdom to people is to understand that everything happens for a reason. My dream when I was sixteen was to move to NYC and go to college there. I didn’t have the opportunity, but thank God (or whoever/whatever) because I ended up meeting my best friend, Holly. If I had gone anywhere else I never would have met my soul mate. In the next 5, 10, 15 years I hope that people can start to look outside themselves and start to really embrace the idea of community. I hope I’m still best friends with Holly, happily married, with children – laughing and enjoying life.”

“What I’ve learned is life is not all about me! Me! Me! We all need to realize that there are other people out there; we need to be patient with each other, many in the same position as ourselves, or having greater difficulties. Good people who are just trying to make ends meet financially and in taking care of their families. I just try to live by the golden rule, do unto others, as you would have them do unto you. Absolutely not, you treat others the way you would like to be treated. The future, I’d like to see a day where people are simply getting along, not judging each other by race, age, ethnicity, religion, wealth or political view. Just accepting each other for who they are and being able to either agree or disagree with kindness.”
