Dsc07566Dignity Day, Jordan proved to me, once and for all, that young people are the same all over the world. They all want the same things — dignity, a voice, opportunity and the reasonable fulfillment of their dreams, respect for their views and opinions, peace, and 99% want to find a way to serve others even as they help themselves. One has to wonder, what would happen if world leaders actually took some of their counsel from the youth of the world? Something to think about…

Onward and with HOPE
