Historically, September 11th was changed in our minds over a decade ago, forever. Over the years, we’ve been in annual vigilance for those who lost their lives in the tragedy of the WTC airplane bombing. I respect all of those that protect our freedom and the solidarity of the Red, White & Blue. However, this journey I’m on is about positive change and moving forward toward HAPPINESS. On this 9/11 I did something to strengthen our community.
So, I decided to check on a few things that have been on my To-Do list. I walked into the City County Building to ask a few questions and get some clarification. Before I knew it I was in line and going through the process. Right there in Room 201 HUGS (Helping Unforgettable Girls Succeed) for the next 5 years. It wasn’t what I had planned to do, but it must have been time. I talked with the Deputy Clerk about the program and she was excited to hear about it. I walked out into the sunny sidewalk of Detroit and :). Why, might you ask? Because through it all, helping these girls is paramount to me. while leaving I read the inscription on the wall behind the Spirit of Detroit (in the caption below). It propelled me into the next phase of execution.
With the completion of this component. My partner, Mercedies Harris and our volunteer mentors will look into planning some events that will help us generate a fund for the program. More than that, we want to become a fixture in the lives of as many girls as we can and encourage them toward awesomeness. There’s still a long way to go but I feel very positive about what’s happening.
I was so excited I had to share it with you… 🙂
