Affirmative action begins at home.

—Detroit Barber

As parents, we have to be driven to mine every opportunity that can benefit our children. No excuses. Whether we are short on time, energy, or money, there are always ways we can get what we want for our children. If we don’t find them at first, we have to keep on looking. It might take a dozen phone calls, some cajoling, planning, or creative problem solving, but aren’t our children worth it?

Call to Action:  On this day, I will take five minutes to consider whether I am exhausting every opportunity to secure opportunities that will permit my child to stretch to his potential and get in touch with what life has to offer.
