Prompt for August 9, 2015

Complete the short story/flash fiction, that has the following first paragraph:

“You came here looking for the next great leader. Someone to galvanize your spirit and lead you forth to victory. Someone who started in the gutter like yourself but has raised themselves up. Someone in whom you want to place your trust, your loyalty, your obedience. But you won’t find that person on this stage. You won’t find that person easily for they don’t know that they are the one you are looking for. They don’t know because they too are looking for a leader. They are looking to help others not lead others and that is why they are suited for the position: they don’t want it.” He paused for a moment and looked at the rapt crowd before him. “The next great leader? It is you. You are the person that we have been looking for. You are the person that YOU have been looking for. The world is changing and you are the instrument of that change.”
