Like many of you, my time is limited. To keep myself orga­ nized, every day I write a list of things to do. It’s always a very long list of things such as, “Finish essay,” “Go to gym” or “Do laundry.”

But after reading the stories in this issue of Klipsun, I was inspired to write a more important list of “Things to Do.” I wrote a list of things to do in my lifetime. Several of the stories in this issue feature local people who have made sacrifices for the sake of others or have set incredible goals for themselves. Although aiming to be the world’s no. 1 female powerlifter, climbing Mount Everest or ser\ing in the Army were not on my list of things to do, these stories encouraged me to think of all the great opportunities I would like to have and the things I would like to do (or at least try) in my life.

I hope you will also find these stories to be motivating, whether they encourage you to follow a childhood dream (as football player Erik Totten did), give something a second chance (as one of our writers did for “Welcome to the Waterfront”) or try some­ thing new (such as kiteboarding). Whatever you gain from these stories, I hope you also decide to think about and write your own list of things to do in your lifetime.
