Gutted

So the result came through about 5:30am this morning, that Scotland had voted no to the opportunity to have complete control over the running of our country. I’ve not really known a feeling of disappointment like this. While I respect the opinons of both parties, I can’t help but feel we missed a huge, once in a lifetime opportunity to take our country forward. For that, I am absolutely gutted.

However I’m feeling right now, this can’t be the end of the movement that inspired so many young people across Scotland, myself included, to take an interest in not just politics, but to take interest in standing up for what you believe in.

What today showed is that at the very least, 45% of this country is deeply dissatisfied with the current system, and for this effort not to be in vain we must continue to push forward for a fairer, more prosperous Scotland for us all.

In recent months I’ve have found my political awakening and I urge you, if you haven’t already, to find yours.

On Tomorrow

Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
