Shattered Glass


As we try to encourage our young people to live independently and take a more

proactive role in their lives and in the world, they are constantly bombarded

with challenges and obstacles that keep them from reaching those levels of

us to stand up and recognize that we have not provided all of the support and

sometimes…even LOVE…that youth need in order to access their fullest

potential. We have stood around, in some cases, and watched the shattered glass

that has fallen into their lives and around them.

confirmation and even in their shattered glass there is repair!

We can do this but we have to listen to their voices – Listen to the
