We Are Not A Lost Cause: the Youth Speak!: A Collection of Writing from Students in the Born for Greatness Youth Writers Summer 2011 Classby Tamara Shirer
In the summer of 2011 a group of students joined the Born For Greatness Youth Writers program, under the impression that they were simply taking a writing class. Little did they know that there was a much greater purpose for them. In the BFG Youth Writers class, the students learned how to cultivate their writing skills, but there was also an awakening in them as they recognized the greater purpose for the program. They learned that they were joining a movement to empower, uplift and invoke consciousness within the human race. The students learned that there is power in their words & their gift of writing. So on their journey to become more confident in themselves and their gifts, the writing that they produced became more and more powerful and thought provoking.
Often adults don't listen to what comes from the mouths of young people, because adults are usually busy trying to put words into their mouths. As you read through this book, you will be pleasantly surprised at how insightful, intelligent and awakened many of our young people really are! In this book the BFG Youth Writers share their voices with the world, and speak for their generation as they boldly proclaim: "We Are Not A Lost Cause: The Youth Speak!". ~Tamara Shirer, Founder & CEO of Born For Greatness Youth Empowerment Resources.
