One of my other staff members is a Mentor to 3 levels of at risk kids in Houston. He missed a meeting due to one of his kids graduations was that day and his Mother feigned forgetfulness and didn't show up so this great man made sure someone was there for this child. I asked this man if he could please pass along the Giving Key to someone he helps that may need a little hope in their life. He cried and said he knew exactly the person to give it to. He will then share his story with you as well.
It just shows you should never, ever give up Hope. Sometimes that may be all that you have left to hold on to. Fortunately things change, life keeps moving and other opportunities present themselves. Just don't give up that Hope or you won't see what's around the next corner. Eventually the sun will shine again! Don't give up!
