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