"Young boys and girls are waiting on us [who believe that no one is coming]...We must all be willing to show up, be present, engage and connect, to change and help in another’s life. To those of us who have made it…this is an opportunity to be accountable, show up, return, pour things in and challenge others to pay it forward." -Connie L.
