It was a November afternoon that I sat on the front porch of my local cafe and deeply thought about an idea; Nothing out of the ordinary as I did this often and much. I drank lukewarm coffee and discussed with some old acquaintances the idea of a group of young adults putting together a “Rolling-Stone” type magazine/website; To tell you the truth, many talented people laughed and shook off the offer, for that I am deeply saddened because they’re going to miss one hell of a ride. I proceeded to reach out to all different types of people from all different walks of life, many haven’t even met yet. That is the beauty of it. It’s as if I'm placing together the pieces of a puzzle, slowly but surely. Our generation is in need of something refreshing. Our brains will race and our eyes will quickly process what lies before us. What lies before us is The Passion Collective, a collective production founded in New York. It will be fueled by talent, hard-work, and most of all passion. It will only work if YOU contribute your piece of passion to the puzzle. Everyone is passionate about something. I, Zachary Franck have selected a group of unique individuals who all bring something to the table. From poets to journalists, photographers to bloggers, sports enthusiasts to hip-hop heads, I promise you that there is something for everyone. I truly believe in this and I believe in you. This project will stay true to it's name, always.Unlike other websites/magazines,The Passion Collective will actually make you think. As Hunter S. Thompson once said, “Buy the ticket, Take the ride”. Please join The Passion Collective as we all embark on this journey together; Why would you watch the puzzle being built when you can help build it!?

Prescribing Life Lessons: Think Before You Do it

Ideas and morals don't always align with each other. Good ideas can be the victim of bad morals and bad ideas can unfortunately surpass good morals. The most simple of tasks aren't always the easiest. Truth hides in proof; blurred lines become as clear and present as sunshine being mirrored off of snow covered hills. Distance becomes irrelevant and time slowly falls behind purpose. The words of influences float amidst insecure temptations, reminding us to follow through. False pride is just as dangerous as insecure temptations and mistaken identity. We remember certain memories for certain reasons; joy and happiness sit across from anxiety and trauma, but they all echo the same sentiment.

Serotonin levels fluctuate like Wall Street stocks, except we're losing happiness instead of money. Smiles are universal currency and music is the universal language. And at times, a whisper is much louder than a shout. So think before you act, because actions speak louder than words. But the pen is mightier than the sword. For writing is the combination of both acting and speaking, so think before you do it.
