There are times in our lives when we wonder if we were meant to follow our passions and live for something greater. “Dear Daniel” is a coming of age story of a young man, John Lee, who is trying to chase his dreams. But to do so, he must face and confront the most important people in his life. In the end, only he can choose the path he wishes to take.
Our goal with Dear Daniel is to empower young people who watch this film to chase their own dreams and live a life of passion. Too often we settle for less because of the many factors that tell us we need to play it safe and take the more conventional route. But this keeps us from actually becoming the person we are meant to be.
Now, we’d love to hear from you. In an essay, short story or poem, tell us about your passion and why it’s worth fighting for. We’ll pick the most thoughtful and inspiring essay and send the writer a free Jubilee Project Doing Good is Contagious T-Shirt. We’ll also set up a Google hangout between the Jubilee Project boys and the winner to discuss your stories, and share insights and mentorship on navigating this often daunting road to finding your life’s purpose. Submit your essay to us be emailing us at project.jubilee(at)gmail(dot)com by October 8, 2012. http://jubileeproject.org/2012/09/17/new-film-essay-contest-dear-daniel/
