The inspirational thought was from Apple Computers: “Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only one thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Roll call was answered by telling: “What rules at home did you dislike the most?”
