This is a story that lives forever<br />2010-2011 Ohio Campus Compact AmeriCorps*VISTA Program<br />“Here’s to the crazy ones.<br />The misfits, the rebels, the trouble makers.<br />The round pegs in the square holes.<br />The ones who see this differently.<br />They are not fond of rules, And they have no respect for the status quo<br />You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.<br />But the one thing you can’t do is ignore them<br />Because they change things<br />They push the human race forward<br />And while someone may see them as the crazy ones, we see geniuses.<br />Because the people who are crazy enough to <br />Think they can change the world---are the ones who do.”<br />
