Attended the kickoff event for the BYU chapter of Students for Social Entrepreneurship last night. I left behind half a dozen strangely quiet students. The palpable energy caught me off guard, probably because of its stark contrast to my depleted state.
A few steps later, one of the girls just stopped.
When the others turned to face her, she sort of shook her head and blurted out, “I want to be part of that!” I didn’t catch anything else as they walked away, but it made me smile, and I wondered if perhaps I’d just witnessed what Cheryl Dorsey of Echoing Green calls a “moment of obligation.”
Maybe someday I’ll tell you mine.
