They only gave me a couple of minutes so I’m gonna cut to the chase. I’m gonna speak to you, the next generation. I accept the responsibility as your elder, so listen up! This is what I call 9 rules from Chris Pratt Generation Award Winner:

1. Breathe.

If you don’t you’ll suffocate.

2. You have a soul.

Be careful with it.

3. Don’t be a turd.

Be strong, be a protector, and if you’re smart be a humble influencer. Strength and intelligence can be weapons. Do not wield them against the weak, that makes you a bully. Be bigger than that.

4. When giving a dog medicine...

put the medicine in a piece of hamburger they won’t even know they are eating medicine.

5. It doesn’t matter what it is – earn it.

Reach out to someone in pain. Be of service. It feels good and it is good for your soul.

6. God is real

God loves you! God wants the best for you, believe that – I do.

7. If you have to poop at a party...

...but you’re embarrassed because you’re gunna stink up the bathroom, just do what I do. Lock the door. Sit down and get all the pee out first. Once all the pee is gone, you poop flush. Boom! You minimize the amount of time the poop is touching the air. If you poop first, it takes you longer to pee and you pee on top of it and stirring up and the poop particles create a cloud. Then everyone at the party will know that you pooped. Just trust me, it’s science.

8. Learn to pray.

It’s easy and it’s so good for your soul.

9. Nobody is perfect.

Nobody. None of us! People are going to say you’re perfect just the way you are, you’re not. You are imperfect, you always will be. But there is a powerful force that designed you that way and if you’re willing to accept that you will have grace. Grace is a gift. Like the freedom we enjoy in this country, that freedom was paid for with somebody else’s blood. Do not forget it, do not take it for granted.

God bless you
