Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Stop Press

Raise hands anyone who speaks their mother-tongue with fluency. Raise your hands if you can tell your kids a bed-time story that does not feature. It is possible to walk away with substances before its too late. Technology in the past that we could use in the future. We don't have to borrow everything....We could 'hand' with our grandmothers or anyone older who has lived. so that we can see anew who we are. Open your heart to their eye and see how they see. You might find someone like you or even find an identity you could have lost in the colourful chaos.
