Being Myself Is A Big Deal

 

Forecast says it's going to snow tomorrow,
So I shall cherish my time today,
I don't want to be reminded any sorrow
of what happened or will occur anyway,
The will to be free is tense,
The reasons don't have to make any sense,
I wish to stay calm and be real,
Being myself is a big deal.
I shall try my best to be current,
nothing will stop me from valuing my present.

The Vannevar Bush Award honors truly exceptional lifelong leaders in science and technology who have made substantial contributions to the welfare of the Nation through public service activities in science, technology, and public policy. The award was established in 1980 in the memory of Vannevar Bush, who served as a science advisor to President Franklin Roosevelt during World War II, helped to establish Federal funding for science and engineering as a national priority during peacetime, and was behind the creation of the National Science Foundation.
