True Believers Award

Clear images of those who helped me as a boy, our family as adults, and other children and adults as told in books and relayed in oral tradition, speak of deeds done yester year.  Living among us is a true legend, Valerie Sutton, who chose to lead, while others will follow;  chose to develop, while others will emulate.  Learning a new language is often difficult. To learn Sign Writing is rewarding, an act of compassion, empowerment and conceding self interest.
