What did you learn about the world Color, race or appearance does not make a difference we all in together because we care. Hundreds of people come out and support yet how we suppose to know if we are hiding behind the doors.
What did you learn about yourself? Nothing can stop me from been a hero to some one Treat children like they are my family It takes one child, one advertisement to open up my heart I had patience when it came to talking to people When something went wrong I kept trying - Araceli
Make a change More people will open up there hearts. More people will come out and support. More people will come out an donate to the children in the need for our help. http://www.wheelsforwishes.org/
