Mayor Svante Myrick

Yesterday is not ours to recover, but tomorrow is ours to win or lose. – Lyndon B. Johnson

It’s an inspiring story on Upworthy.

A young mayor who is connected to his constituents with social media.

Messages reach him, uncensored.

A guy with a vision for his city.

A story from rag to inspiring others.

His situation is not a disadvantage to him. His poverty doesn’t restrict his potential.

Instead, it inspired him to do good.

Taking up works to support his study.

To be grateful of what the government has done for him, and him back to society, in return.

“We are successful when we take care of each other, when we look out for each other,” – Svante Myrick

Each and everyone of us has a situation that we are facing. Whether it is favorable or not favorable.

We can’t change what has happened to us. But we can change what we think and believe in. And we can change our reaction to it. We choose to respond, instead to react to it using knee-jerk response.

Have a good read of the article in Upworthy.
