The Mass Address story
When something is important enough, you do it even if the odds are not in your favor.
On December 17th, 2003, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King was released in theaters. I remember being captivated by the sights and sounds of this cinematic masterpiece. There is a scene in the movie where Frodo is making his way through the mountains on his journey to Mordor. He is mentally and physically exhausted because of the Ring he is carrying. He collapses and sees a vision of himself waking up in a beautiful green glen.
When he looks up from the ground, Galadriel extends her hand to Frodo and tells him something which I will never forget. (cue the heavenly music) “This task was appointed to you, Frodo of the Shire. If you do not find a way, no one will.” I always thought deep down that G-d himself was talking to me through Galadriel in the movie. Thirteen years later, G-d showed me the task which was appointed to me. Many tears and many prayers have been shed because of this burden and I have wanted to give up so many times. As soon as I have my Frodo moment, Galadriel is there to remind me, “This task was appointed to you. If you do not find a way, no one will.”
I did not choose this endeavor. This endeavor chose me. For the last 5 years of my life, I have been carrying a $20 billion dollar weight on my shoulders. As much as I have wanted to walk away from Mass Address, I am continually reminded of the global problem of which only Mass Address can solve. I am writing this book in the hopes that someone else in the world wants to stand with me to fix a very broken system.
