When productive paranoia, fanatic discipline, and empirical creativity encounter (big ups to “Great By Choice”) the Resistance a dream once deferred becomes reality.
I wish it were possible to bottle up and preserve the gratitude and excitement that I’m currently experiencing. We have worked tirelessly on this project and tomorrow it will finally launch. genYus will no longer be just another great idea that two crazy Millennials dreamed up on a phone call, it will live.
Regardless of the outcome we are already victorious. We have set our minds to purpose and we will see it realized. This risk is one that we must take; the call can no longer go unanswered. The message is needed, the system is broken, and we have the courage to deliver it despite what opposition may come.
Langston Hughes conveys this message in one of his greatest works, “Harlem.”
What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore –
and then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
or crust and sugar over –
like a syrupy sweet?
Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.
Or does it explode?
We dream in color. The Resistance has been conquered; momentum and ambition are on our side…its time to break free.
