I had the unique pleasure of visiting the inmates at the West Palm Beach Juvenile Detention Center where I shared my own experience as a troubled teenager, and as a survivor of the 9/11 tragedy.
It was one of the most life-changing experiences I’ve had in a long time. Seeing how bright and insightful these boys and girls were just gave me a glimpse of the miracles they can accomplish – if they just believe and stay focused on their dreams and goals.
I spoke to four groups of teenagers, ranging from 12 to 17 years of age. I look forward to another opportunity of sharing my message of hope and awareness with those of all ages. It’s great to be part of such a worthy cause.
