― Whitney Young

I wonder… how are you planning for the future? What seeds are you planting now for a tomorrow that will harvest a life and a world that you are thrilled with? What are you incorporating into your today that will provide a benefit in the future? Continue reading “June 28th: Our powerful voice”
