“What I’ve realized is that life doesn’t count for much unless you’re willing to do your small part to leave our children — all of our children — a better world,” he said.
“Even if it’s difficult. Even if the work seems great. Even if we don’t get very far in our lifetime. That’s our responsibility as fathers and as parents.”
