Rachel's Challenge

Yesterday I had the opportunity to attend the Rachel's Challenge presentation at my school. The experience of being present with my students at The Ursuline School in New Rochelle, NY for this presentation was incredible. In the afternoon I was also present at the beginning of our FOR -- Friends of Rachel -- Club. The enthusiasm of the 50 young women gathered together was palpable as they were trained and then invited to come up with ideas for how we can continue to implement what was learned at the earlier presentations. These students were recommended by faculty members and counselors and then were selected by the administration to begin this club. The students are already planning their first project to increase awareness and kindness.

From rural New York to Westchester County I believe that the chain reaction has begun and will continue to grow. May all be inspired by the beauty and tenacity of Rachel Joy Scott's life. She was not afraid to stand up for those who had no voice and she encourages up to do the same.

If you want more information on Rachel's Challenge you can visit: www.rachelschallenge.org. On this website you will find a great deal of information as well as DVD clips to view.

Have a great day and remember to be the change you wish to see!
