Transcript of Evocative Object Rough Draft: Chess

Why are things
the way they are? In chess, you have to know
when to move forward, when
to retreat, and when to do nothing
at all. Who made them
this way? And if so... what? Things are not always... ...what they appear
to be. Does something need to change? Critical thinking skills are necessary
to succeed both at chess... ...and at life. You'll find that you can fall quite far. Chess has long been an interest of mine and has greatly influenced my way of thinking. I try to ponder
the world as I would ponder
my next move in a game of chess. The same idea applies to
relationships and conversation. It's taught me that... Speech is a battlefield.
Chess also
taught
me... ...that you do not always
win. Much of the time... You lose. That's okay. It's just a part of
grow... grow... ...growing up. Each experience makes
you a better, stronger,
wiser person. In chess, every piece has its own strengths
and weaknesses. A single piece cannot succeed on its own. It takes all of them working together to achieve a common goal. Like chess pieces, each person has their own individual traits. They are to be valued highly for their individuality and for what each can bring to the table. Everyone has a story. A life. An Adventure... Say the wrong thing at the wrong time, and
you could land yourself in trouble. There comes a time when
you need to look beyond the
placement of the pieces in order to see
the intent behind them. Alternatively, a kind word can really
brighten someone's day. These things matter because we, like the chess pieces,
are never alone. We are all linked by experiences, ideals, thoughts and emotions. To me, Chess is humanity. Chess is me. Though we may be black or white, bishop or pawn, we
cannot deny the links that bind us to our fellow man.
