The thing that inspires me and gives me hope is the positive response I continue to receive about working with wounded students across the country. The response has nothing to do with my abilities as a presenter: it is because educators are recognizing the very real need to bring transformation to the lives of the wounded youth in our schools and want to take action. We can no longer be indifferent to the unique needs and challenges facing wounded students. Some of their futures will depend on our response. Foundational to being effective in our response is continued awareness and training geared towards reaching this population of students, and not being afraid to step out and try.
