Don’t Apologize for Me

When I was at Cornerstone Schools, the program began with the students performing a brief skit.  They had memorized lines and recited them in front of all of the mentors.  When the microphone was passed to one young man, he said three words…..then froze.  Words would not come out.  To his credit, he passed the […]
