In the words of Frederick Douglas, "It is easier to build strong children, than to repair broken men". While these timeless words from the late elder statesman were conceived in the context of the social and political issues of his time, they ring true to this day more than a century later. Let's build lives and healthy lifestyle choices, let's build safer neighborhoods, let's build stronger educational systems; let's build families.

An old Coca-Cola commercial, chimed the following words in my childhood, " I am the future of the world, I am the hope of my nation, I am tomorrow's people, I am the new inspiration... and we've got a song to sing to you, we've got a message to bring to you, we set a dream for you and for me and tomorrow......."

It's all about tomorrow, and our children, let's build together.
