‘I am honored to share life changing service experiences with the Global Peace Foundation. Through GPF, I have been introduced to some of the most humble, compassionate and civically engaged individuals on earth. In November 2012, I was introduced to GPF at the annual Global Peace Convention in Atlanta, Georgia. This convention opened my eyes to global issues but more importantly I witnessed global love and gained understanding.
Continuing, I was privileged to serve with GPF in conjunction with a host of other organizations in Atlanta, Georgia for the 2013 MLK Day of service. I was pleased to be engaged in hands on service and work together with such a dynamic group of youth and young adults.
Often times, too much time is spent conversing about the works of others and self-glorification that service opportunities are missed and overlooked. GPF never misses opportunities to serve. I appreciated and enjoyed the MLK day of service, as it was a collaborative hands-on effort to restore such a monumental place. We were enlightened by panels but we also participated in renovating the King center and keeping the dream alive.
I believe we made Dr. King proud as he looked down and saw many people of many races, religions and creeds collaborating for greater good. I am more than eager to serve again this year as we continue a legacy of service, love and peace.’
