Project 2016: “What is a meaningful life?”

There exist a life path, which is never voiced but clearly paved. It is a life plan which bridges ethnic, cultural and geographic boundaries lending us all to undergo a similar journey.

However, when the time comes, bar the family we have been assigned and the friends we have managed to connect with, however many or few, we pass on. What mark have we imprinted on this Earth? Is that mark enough or are we seeking to leave a mark at all? What do you define as living a meaningful life?
