Happy Friday the 13th! There has always been a special place in my heart for the number 13, especially the ones that land on Fridays. Just my usual contrariness of not following the crowd or something larger guided by the universe? Who knows, but we did close on our land on a Friday the 13th almost 8 1/2 years ago and that was a successful venture.
I am going to take a break from writing this week and offer this awesome, powerful TEDx video of Ken Danford from North Star for your viewing pleasure. Ken offers an opportunity, or maybe it is a challenge at the end of the video. If you take on this challenge, one more kid will have the chance to be happy. And, we all know the possibilities that are present when happiness is part of our lives.
Just click the above link to see the video, or go to our videos page on the website. I have watched this twice and cried the second time. We are so fortunate to have this visionary amongst us who is willing to share his stories and wisdom to help others create spaces for young people around the world. Thank you, Ken.
