What is the mission statement of your life?

An artist named Matt Jones did a version of the classic British “Keep Calm and Carry On” poster that has been altered to read “Get Excited and Make Things” That feels pretty close to the mark. Also, I do spend a lot of time working on Loving Day. One could argue that I have internalized its mission statement, which is to fight racial prejudice through education and to build multicultural community.
