Have Faith. Dream. Execute.

If someone challenged you to deny everything you believed in, would you succumb to their whims? If the phrase, “Well, everybody’s doing it,” was the mantra that everyone around you seemed to prefer, would you change your convictions? What is it that makes you loyal to your faith? Even if you don’t think you’re a spiritual…
