It seems that no matter how much time and effort you devote to helping kids, it is absolutely certain that you cannot help everyone. Does this release us from trying? I think not! I am the result of caring individuals. Oh sure, I had to get real with myself and come to the place where I wanted to change. Where I wanted better for myself and more out of life. However, if I did not have people in my life telling me that I could succeed I am sure that I wouldn’t have. There are times now that I get discouraged and feel like my efforts aren’t benefiting anyone…especially myself, but thanks to my wife, mentors, and a few of the kids who I have the privilege of serving week in and week out, I am able to push through the day.
