The beautiful poem below was written by 14-year old Project UNIFY youth leader Raven McCombs from North Carolina.
Your spirit has taught me that we are so far behind, you face challenges that don’t compare to mine.
I am in awe of all of your courage, you never seem to get discouraged.
We all often just walked on by, and never noticed the light in your eye.
You always accept us for who we are, and he is the reason we have made it this far.
It is my honor to call you a friend, a friend I’ll be there for them beginning to end.
Not another day will go by where you have to sit and wonder why.
I’ll be there for you, you’ll be there for me. Our trust is the clue and our love is the key.
