These are life skills that I feel we are losing in our busy world. Kindness, compassion, and care can be lost in the “sea of busy” and it’s good to have a program to help people focus and center on the ideals that make life bearable when things get tough. I make an effort every day to master what I know of these principles and to pass them on to someone else. I am a firm believer in “Each one reach one, each one teach one” and that is exactly what you all are doing! Keep your faith high, believe, dream, and watch the world move to the beat of your drum!
