Dead Poets Society (1989)

To John Keating

There are some characters that feels like our long lost buddies and words or dialogues that plays in our head everytime we need a push. You and your words were the very thing that opened my heart to new possibilities.

It was a time of uncertainty when I found you telling the boys , ‘Listen, you hear it? – – Carpe – – hear it? – – Carpe, carpe diem, seize the day boys, make your lives extraordinary.’ I found you in a time when like Todd, I was shy and hesitant to share my words with the world. You urged us to find our voices sooner because the longer we wait to begin, the less likely we’re to find it. You encouraged us to think for ourselves, to be our own individuals. Most importantly, you made us believe that no matter what, our words and ideas can change the world.

And here I am sharing my words with the world for which I cannot thank you enough Oh Captain, My Captain!
