    / Comments (0)

    Every up and coming generation must endure a certain amount of skepticism, reluctance and misunderstanding by the ones who came before them. It's a universal and not so subtle reminder that the reins of progress will not be given unconditionally. There are no entitlements to success. And the only claim any generation or individual can stake in this world will be merit based. So don't get complacent. Don't get disappointed. There's a giant inside of everyone. Don't get comfortable. http://www.american-giant.com/
