Some leave their homes, families, and belongings.
Some leave a rubble of hopes, dreams, and aspirations in their wake.
Some leave their hard earned savings and borrowed money at the tables.
Some leave a life of security and comforts for a life of creative uncertainty.
Some leave their body spent and broken with only trophies to help through the pain.

Are they heroes or fools? Should they be shamed or celebrated?
