Alec’s message for the younger generation:

The fire of transformation is inside of you, inside of all of you. And that fire can show itself in a variety of ways. Our task as human beings, stepping into adulthood in a time when our whole species is stepping into its own adulthood, is basically just to find the roles that we play, find the place where we fit into the story. And then living it with everything that we have. Live as if the future matters. Live as if the planet matters.
