As we were packing up our show in our second school of the day, Kelsey was telling me that she has missed getting feedback from kids. A lot of adults and administrators have told us that they really enjoy the video, but we haven't heard from any kids in over a week.

No more than ten minutes later, a boy comes up to Kelsey and comments on the video. He said his favorite part was the story of the ex-gang member who got shot in the back, leaving him paralyzed for life. But he went back to school and is now pursuing his doctorate in English.

Come to find out, this boy was in the alternative education group--for troubled kids who are too disruptive to learn in a standard classroom.

We were both encouraged to hear some positive feedback from a kid. It had been a while. And it is what keeps reminding us that what we are doing is worthwhile.
