One Child at a Time by Cathy Capo Stone
09/09/2013 In the middle of the stage at Florida Southern College stood a 16-year-old girl wearing a nametag that said “Poor Young Mom.” She was overwhelmed. She was trying to juggle too many balls and nothing was working for her. Seventy-eight other 6-12th graders watched. Some laughed. Some shouted their suggestions on how to keep the balls in the air.
