she is a special person


click here for video of 60 minutes on the unequal recession

the young person that is one of those special persons is shown in the picture above
her story is scattered throughout this 60 minutes segment from this last week end

i have watched it 3 times and got teary eyed each time

as she said i am trying so hard

we should all have this amount of drive and ambition despite the odds stacked against them 

courtney will make it 
she has it 
she has what it takes to make it
others im afraid would have gone the wrong direction into a dark dark world

now enter the second special person interviewed in this segment 
her interview is about 9:10 ish on the video
as she told me there was more of the interview but as those of us who have been interviewed before by the media
know that the interview can be an hour long but they only use 5 minutes of it
she did a good job with those few minutes of interview shown

i know her well
she is my niece
i was there the day she was born
luckily i was on vacation from medical school
i was excited for her birth
she was born on my birthday
we have always had this bond since then a birthday bond

she like courtney is tenacious
this has helped develop the star house which she is ceo of  to where it is today 
although the pandemic and recession has hurt them in providing services to these kids who are homeless teenagers and young adults

i have sat and listened to her talk about some of the cases
thankfully some of them turn out for the good
courtneys case 
she is described as one of star houses success stories

here is a link below to a neighborhood relief donation page for courtney for housing
she needs $10000
she is now about 1/3 of the way there thanks to the news story 
a go fund me page will be set up for her other expenses later

courtnteys neighborhood relief donation page

this where some of our relief money should be going to places like this and to people like courtney


to both of these women for inspiring us
