But then I started catching up on some blog reading. I've mentioned my friend Candy here before; she's a sorority sister of mine living in Columbus so we occasionally see each other, and in fact we had lunch with some other sorority sisters on Friday. Candy writes a blog, Bird Uncaged, in which she posts something that she's thankful for every single day. She also works with Yoga Gangsters, an organization which her sister started in Miami, and Candy brought to Columbus. From the YG website: "Yoga Gangsters empowers youth by addressing the symptoms of trauma and poverty such as limited education, addiction, violence, incarceration, teen pregnancy, HIV, and more through the science and practice of yoga."
The Columbus chapter currently works through Huckleberry House and trust me, this is not your average yoga class. Last Thursday Huck House held their Awards to Celebrate Youth and Candy was in attendance. I would really love for you to read her thoughts on that night, so please go here. I believe that every child deserves to have someone who loves them and believes in them.
