My Grandfather the Oil Baron
Hank Green
1458

Your grandfather gave you something even more priceless that many people will never ever have — a spirit of possibility and opportunity that eventually helped produce products that today people use ubiquitously. I suppose a case can be made that these products can be used judiciously or malevolently, but the point is moot. The more important take-away, in my opinion, is together, both you and your grandfather have collectively planted and modeled a seed of possibility in hundreds of millions of people. Nice going, Grandpa!
