"I joined Friends Forever because I was inspired by their mission for peace among all of humanity. I have had the pleasure of hosting several groups in our home and have been moved by witnessing the closeness and caring among the students. I experienced their joy and openness to each other through music, sharing a meal, taking a walk, playing a game or just sitting in conversation together. Friends Forever has given me hope. I am grateful to be part of an organization that values the belief that through connection we can transcend beyond our generational differences and come together with a mutual desire for peace and respect for all."
