A year ago or more I made the decision to avoid being such a negative influence on people and to start being a positive one. That time was when I became a totally new person.

I took it upon myself, as a personal challenge, to be a friend to those people who are looked down upon, and those who are in poor moods. I desired to be someone who could change the fortunes of an ill day to a good one.

It is exactly that type of person that emulates Christ. I have made it a point to avoid from using the kind of language that harms others, shied away from cursing, and above all avoided using language negative against myself.

I have found that I am much happier living a life under these ideals, and I would encourage you all to consider leading a life filled with the richness of positivity.

Try being a light to others in this dark world, because God knows, there is enough darkness.

As the story always goes; its a sad day when a theater show ends. But the actors, who often go thankless and without reward, deserve their commendation.

I must admit that being a director isn’t an easy job, but the reward is just as incredible as taking that final bow. It has been my pleasure to work with these young people, and I would always encourage you, my readers, to participate in community events and theater. Much like community service with High School and Middle School youth group; it has changed my life. I consider it the ironic comedy of life to “say never” only to be doing what you swore if in the first place.

I am happy to be here as a proud co-director to congratulate my cast who worked so hard over those 5 months to make this the Number 1 youth show to date! Thank you for everything.
