-- Quote of the Day --
“…Your life becomes more self-less and there is this overwhelming feeling – the knowing that you’ve done something great that no one can take away. …There are so many scenarios, but basically – some of the kids have parents in the prison system or were raised with no guidance. People fail to understand that this generation may not have had instruction or opportunities that you and I have had. They may live in a neighborhood where they never saw someone who graduated. – Just knowing that they can do it and that someone cares can take them a long way. …we need everyone to work together to build stronger communities. No one person, no one group can do it alone; we all can make a difference. …There is always something that you can do. Do something to make a difference, and let’s change this world together.”
~ Chantay Bridges
