    • Cindy,
      Thank you for taking the time to watch the video as Bryan Stevenson teaches all of us the value of human life; he also reminds us that we are all imperfect creatures therefore subject to error, nevertheless, there is more that encompasses each being than the mistakes, either unintentionally or intentionally we make along the journey and we all must strive to see the good in each soul and try to tap into that spirit. Oftentimes, we need to be the change that we hope to see in others.
