this is enough for me. April 2, 2012

Filed under: Silas — gallyfam @ 12:26 pm

my husband, phil, and i run a faith-based, non-profit youth organization called Summit County Youth (this is our 11th year).  this year, we are directly in charge of the program for elementary-school students, which includes our sons, Silas and Lincoln (he gets to come a year early — the benefits of being the child of the ones running the show, i guess)…  silas recently wrote an essay for a writing contest through his school about “why i am valuable to my community.”  not sure it totally addresses the topic of the contest, but here is silas’ essay.  he wrote it with zero help from us.  while i love to read anything my son writes, this one is especially meaningful to me.  it reminds me why we do what we do.
