My first response, without thinking would be, "great story!" but after thinking about what I've read I'd rather say, "great reality." It's always good to read about real people and their successes. Keep up the good work.
Ali, I want to commend you on all of your efforts towards this goal of ours. I am trying to get children of color to learn how to sail. It is a good idea for them to know how to swim before they get in that Optimist dinghy. I will be calling on you for advice, OK?
Viewed your site and loved it. Welcome and Thanx for the support with your kind words. You just don't know how blessed you are until you read somebody else's story. Continue doing what you do, and I'm sure God will continue to Bless You the way he has. Keep in touch and I will reciprocate the same. Darrick...aka dswimmerman
