I love this commercial, it is so powerful

Here's to the crazy ones.  The misfits.
The rebels.  The troublemakers.  The round peg in a square hole.
The ones who see things differently.
They're not fond of rules.
And  they have no respect for status quo.
You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you can't do is ignore them.
Because they change things.
They push the human race forward.
And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.
Because the people who are crazy enough to think
They can change the world
Are the ones who do.

(in order) Albert Einstein, Bob Dylan, Martin Luther King, Jr., Richard Branson, John Lennon (with Yoko Ono), R. Buckminster Fuller, Thomas Edison, Muhammad Ali, Ted Turner, Maria Callas, Mahatma Gandhi, Amelia Earhart, Alfred Hitchcock, Martha Graham, Jim Henson (with Kermit the Frog), Frank Lloyd Wright and Pablo Picasso. The commercial ends with an image of a young girl, Shaan Sahota, opening her closed eyes, as if to see the possibilities before her.

It's roomier being the round peg in the square hole. And I really enjoy my craziness!

That is because you two are FEARLESS and you are comfortable being a round peg in a square hole. I am still trying to find my skin. I am the cowardly lion.

Oh, this is wonderful! You made my day! You made me want to jump up and be crazy enough to think that I could change the world, too. Thank you for sharing this inspiring video. xo Kari
