“We opened a crack in the wall and let in more light. Now it’s up to you to widen that crack. Wake them up. And once awake, keep them awake, use your skills as performer, wizard, magician, raconteur, teacher. Get up out of the chair, on your feet, get to work. Help other people out. Raise your consciousness. Respect all others. Be kind. Humor works all the time. When the housewife was asked why she volunteered to work in the high school cafeteria, she replied, ‘Youth must be served.'”
