LOVING the Beautiful defined by our Youngster Generation

 Fostering our celebration of "Seeing Beautiful in our Youth," an initiative designed by our beautiful non-profit of the month, the Alonzo A. Crim Center for Educational Excellence, they solicited reflections from students enrolled in an afterschool program at the Johnston YMCA in Charlotte, North Carolina. The kindness and wisdom and beauty reflected in their words left us in the happiest of tears and strongest of chills. Their writing offers so much promise for a brighter tomorrow where humanity captures and creates beautiful with a passion to pass it on.
