Destroy with a Purpose

As I have recently heard, a group of students will have to soon destroy their books in a creative and meaningful way. Sure, they could burn them, but after living through what I have, I advise you to consider this. The society where I lived thrived on destruction. Every chance they had, flames would  engulf homes and neighbors would stare, entranced by the glow as if bugs to a light. Eventually this fascination with reduction and waste would lead to this society’s own elimination. I ask you, those of you partaking in this exercise, to destroy your books with the intent of creating something new, either physical or intellectual. Think about the actions you will take, the method you choose and its justification. More than anything, destroy so that you can create hope, insight, and innovation. –Clarisse McClellan
