“We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit.” - e.e. cummings Let us continue, as a community, to help our children believe in themselves and keep the human spirit alive. Casey, Jack, and The Dowd Family
