Partnership with Detroit Public Schools:
A Visionary Leader's Comments
Finally, to everyone watching tonight - especially those of you who think this does not involve you, I have one simple request. Tomorrow, regardless of where you live, I ask that you do something to help a child learn.
Dr. King once said to make a difference, "You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love." If you have children or grandchildren, nieces or nephews, turn off the TV and read to them or help them with their homework. If you do not have kids, pick up the phone or stop by your local school and find out how you can get involved in tutoring or mentoring a child. If you own a business, or you are pastor of a church, call your local school and ask how you can help.
We each hold the power to change a child forever.Just imagine what can happen if we all get involved.
