Why would you do this?

Some might ask, Why would you do this?  Be involved in robotics, I mean.  As a student.  As a mentor.  As a parent supporter.  It brings long hours.  It brings lots of headaches.  It certainly isn’t a cheap activity.  Theres many nights of worry, and thinking.  Well, maybe this can answer.  Its put out by our friends at FIRST, but its just as applicable to VEX.
