Cameron Crowe's Mission
Rather than rely on a prop for such an integral part of the story, Cameron Crowe wrote a real 27 page "Mission Statement." Crowe felt that since he needed his actors to understand the importance of the "Mission Statement;" he needed to write out the actual text. The actual "Mission Statement" contains his dreams, his hopes for himself, and his hopes for his family. All of the random thoughts you'd normally never write out, but believe in or think about, are part of Crowe's finished "Mission Statement."
