"Resilience is about our ability to withstand, deal with and recover from difficult situations. Stories of resilience often begin with bad news, with tragedy and pain. Yet the story is made by what happens after that, by the dawn that follows the darkest hour. Today I am here to share with you my experiences with adversity and how I was able to get through it"- Brian Castellanos
Last fall I received a phone call by @therealfredhogan to see if I would speak at the annual Stop the Violence assembly at city hall. Without hesitation I accepted this opportunity. I was able to share my story with every 6th and 7th grader in The city of Lynn. I am so grateful to have had that opportunity. I never forgot where I came from and appreciate every opportunity to give back to our youth.
Today Stop the violence will be hosting their peace march at 3:30. There will be Stop the violence gear for purchase. Go out and support the cause.
