According to Wikipedia, “The Federalist Papers is a collection of 85 articles and essays written by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay under the collective pseudonym “Publius” to promote the ratification of the United States Constitution.”

And according to the lyrics from Hamilton, “The plan was to write a total of twenty-five essays, the work divided evenly among the three men. In the end, they wrote eighty-five essays, in the span of six months. John Jay got sick after writing five. James Madison wrote twenty-nine. Hamilton wrote the other fifty-one!”

While most people avoided responsibility, Hamilton made it his personal mission to see that the U.S. constitution was ratified.

The phrase, “If it is to be then it is up to me” has been in print in the United States for over 60 years and no one is quite sure of the originator of the quote.

However, “If it is to be then it is up to me”  was certainly embodied by Alexander Hamilton and we are in need today of individuals who take responsibility for changing the world.

Victims give up; whereas, victors like Hamilton endure.

Which are you a victim or a victor?

If you want your world different it’s up to you.

Let me leave you with one last quote, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”  -Margaret Mead.
