Serve #9 – A young man’s vision.
Theo M. is an honorable young man full of ambition, with a desire and calling to change the political tide. He’s a wonderful example for a “Serve.” I have watched Theo grow from a boy into the 17 year old clear-thinking, focused, intelligent, politically conservative individual he is. Don’t let the last words stop you from reading on, because I think you will see merit in his view, and understand that he may well be someone to watch as the years go on. When I asked him a few questions it was easy to see from his excitement that his compassion for people and their needs is at the very forefront of his thoughts and desires for what his future might hold. So often, we draw a line regarding what political party we tend to align with, but it seems as though Theo desires to create change in people, not just provide more political tape to cut through.
This is a quote from Theo when asked about why he serves:
“As a Christian conservative I feel called to be compassionate and sensible. My interest in politics is driven by those values. Christ offered mercy and grace yet held us accountable. The liberal big government programs have created a cycle of poverty and a lack of adequate education, which in turn leads to generations of families being stuck in social malaise. As a compassionate conservative, I know showing mercy, grace and generosity on a personal level helps others. I know that teaching the impoverished REAL hope through accountability and conservative work ethic, while serving their true needs through personal service will give the hand up needed to introduce those in need to a thriving, successful life. It’s my goal to pursue my passion for helping through a career in economics and politics that focuses on developing conservative values in policies and programming.”
I consider it an honor to know Theo. It is refreshing to know that the youth of today like Theo have heartfelt desire for the tomorrows.
