In a world where you can be anything, choose to be kind. 

This can be a beautiful place by simply choosing to show love and compassion for one another. The future of the community is depending on what we choose to do today. Let’s encourage, pray for, uplift and motivate one another to become better each day. We, the adults of the community, owe it to the youth to set them up for future success. The reality is that one day many of them will become adults and will call this area “home.” Let’s lay a solid foundation that they can build a solid structure upon. Let’s plant seeds that they can all watch grow into something beautiful. Alone we are strong, but together we are stronger and together we can help change the narrative.
