THINK

Thanks in advance for modeling so young people develop these habits. 
Our community is well served when we all communicate clearly & honestly.
When people of all ages can and do share ideas in this way, positive things will happen.
Young people are certainly on a learning curve......we believe they can negotiate it successfully.
