The Fun Part of Advocacy
I know that it seems like my work is all sadness and no light, but that's not true at all. Just last week Darrell and I were able to meet up with tons of local young advocates, and this morning I met a bunch more. I'm one of those grandmas who truly believes that youth will heal our world.
Some of these people who I love the most are parents and kids from Project Lyfe - a dance outreach, the local high school RISE team, two young therapists - on a gender specialist, and one a suicide prevention specialist, a local university activist, a family who lost their teenager, a videographer and his teenagers, kids and workers from a teen homeless shelter, the young parents from Western Colorado Congress, and so many more.
I'm impressed and humbled by their determination to turn this bus around. Go team!
