Jeremy Vasquez, Special Guest
I want to take the time to sincerely thank everyone in your organization for allowing me to bring my gifts to your respective classroom last week. I don't even know where to begin but I will say, what I experienced amongst your students has given me nothing but joy. The young girl that cried in the middle of my activity filled my heart with hope. I haven't experienced anything like that before but I know I opened some very protected vaults inside of all of your kids. I wish I had safe spaces afterschool like those you're creating with Higher Ground but it fills my spirit to know the experiences you are bringing to your students. Teaching is a spiritual act and I most certainly witnessed some of those in person. I'm looking forward to building with your non-profit as a whole and I look forward to returning in the future. Thank you so much for being open to the art of healing and exploring consciousness through spoken word. I hope you see some great changes with your beautiful students moving forward this semester! Love you all...
