I'm now a second semester senior in high school. Pretty soon, I'll graduate and move right along into the next phase: college. After talking a lot with my mom about this, I've come to realize how much of a financial hardship college is going to be. I'm the third kid in four years to go to school and the support comes mainly from my mom as my dad doesn't really pay child support. I have about a year's worth of tuition saved for school and at the same time, my sister, who is a sophomore, is about to run out of funds. In all honesty, I'm not too psyched about the college thing. Our world needs change sooner than four years from now and I simply can't wait. At the very least, I'd like to take a year off to promote change in the U.S. I could give most of money to my sister to help her finish school while I hit the road as an activist. Here's my plan: Find a partner. Work this summer to save money for my trip. Buy a minibus and convert it into a camper to comfortably sleep and sustain the two of us. Paint the bus with positive energy to create visual stimulation of peace in people's minds. Hit the road in August, carrying a message of peace and love across the country. Stretch funds to California and spend about a month working and living with some relatives to generate more money for the trip. The rest is yet to be determined. Right now, I'm looking for ideas on how to maximize our impact during such a trip. How do we reach out to the trouble minded people of America? When my dad was in high school, he and his friends sold empty bottles with labels that read "Good Vibes", "Sex Vibes", "Party Vibes", etc. I thought a good idea might be to recreate this business and sell "Good Vibes" and "Peace Vibes" on the road. I'm obviously looking for a more effective way of promoting our ideas, but this is at least a small way. All thoughts are greatly appreciated. Please respond.
