I enjoy these efforts. I love working with our staff and everyone involved, including the talent to turn a spotlight on what we are trying to do.
Still, at the end of the day, it makes me incredibly sad that our organization even needs to exist. Families trapped in poverty deserve much more than we are able to deliver at this point.
As Ms. Rimes sang last night, maybe the best approach is to be committed to "change the things I (we) can." I continue to believe the list of things that can change to the great benefit of us all is long and eminently doable.
Any ideas on who we should invite to perform next year? I'd love to hear your ideas.
