We were wired to learn by imitation. So I truly believe when we come to a level of notoriety, we indirectly sign up to become an example for others to learn from and imitate (whether it be good or bad). For us to deny this responsibility to be such a role model is irrelevant because other eyes have been [and will not stop] watching.
If we want to see real change in our world, it begins with us all on an individual basis. What we put out into the atmosphere is like seeds placed in the ground. What we receive is the result of what seeds we choose to plant and nurture during our time here. Before we all are done with life, it's always good to examine what seeds we planted in humanity [for better or worse]. What gift or curse did we give humanity? This is our world, we are our brother's keeper.
