I am still in awe of this wonderful group of young people. Some come from the other side of the globe to Vaughan Park to help support others with different disabilities to enjoy a camp full of challenges.
They had just finished an amazing wall hanging of 8 individual paintings from 8 different teams when I arrived. It was lunchtime, my favourite time of day and like bees to honey they all dove into the food. Well, in a straight line, slowly and orderly, but that’s just a sign of respect.
Each of them were listening so intensely with a few really good questions (one threw me unexpectedly as they should) but it showed how engaged they were. One young man came up to me afterwards and shared some of his story, similar to my own in some ways, and it broke my heart! Yet, I’m so glad he’s here, sharing and allowing the healing to help him move forward.
Thank you again Rotary for inviting me along to your awesome camp and allowing me to present my story to this group. I can only hope it helped
