NEW YORK — There is often a difficulty in branding our personal growth for the environment and to those around us, but for the hopeful, we can celebrate it. Like a child, we learn on our own, want the benefits of others, and must continue learning in order to find happiness and fulfillment. I love the phrase “discover your truth” and hope these photos can help you see ourselves through others’ eyes. It has been the decade of our life and we hope to continue to grow together in this world. -Grey Power Roseboro Chapter-
