The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
Fight hard, but always remember to fight for what you believe in. This summer I discovered the power of fighting hard for your opinions and beliefs. Working on a political campaign was the perfect way to express my beliefs. This summer, my brother Harry occupied his time in a hot office surrounded by paper work, ringing phones, and sometimes his brother. He was campaigning for Maura Healy, a candidate for Massachusetts Attorney General. At the beginning of August, I began to participate in the campaign and soon after, I loved every moment. I started committing lots of my time to Maura and began to convince others that she was the right choice for Attorney General. One Saturday afternoon, there was a phone-banking event at the campaign. People came from all over Massachusetts to support Maura and my brother and I were in charge in seeing that everyone had a script that showed them what to say. When there were no longer people to be given scripts, I decided to make some calls of my own. I found a corner just for myself and began dialing number after number. Each time I hung up the phone after talking to a complete stranger and checked the tiny box that said: yes, voting for Maura. I felt as if I was doing a great dead for society. The work I put into the campaign was never easy and sometimes I wanted nothing more than to kick my feet up and enjoy a nice cold lemonade. I never did, however, and I’m so grateful that I didn’t because the feeling of satisfaction I received after long days at the campaign was worth it. The completion of something you had to work for is satisfaction in itself, but when you work hard for something you believe in, there is no better feeling. When I crash into bed after a long and tiring day, I think back to the muggy summer nights in the middle of August, when I was campaigning for Maura. I feel accomplished and pleased with myself. It would be hard to live without personal beliefs, because fighting for them is what lets me sleep every night.
