They're not that different from you, are they? Same haircuts. Full of
hormones, just like you. Invincible, just like you feel. The world is
their oyster. They believe they're destined for great things, just
like many of you, their eyes are full of hope, just like you. Did they
wait until it was too late to make from their lives even one iota of
what they were capable? But if you listen real close, you can hear
them whisper their legacy to you. Go on, lean in. Listen, you hear it?
--Carpe--hear it?--Carpe--carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make
your lives extraordinary.
