Being Present...

As 2012 comes to a close we want to take a step back and reflect on what we are thankful for this year.

A little known fact is that the 12 days of Christmas happen after Christmas. They run from Christmas Day to Epiphany, which is when the Magi arrived to see Jesus.

On the first day of Christmas, we are thankful to be here. What started as a desire to ensure patients of the forensic nurses did not leave barefoot, has spread into something that has the potential to change an entire community.

We registered with the state of Colorado in December of 2011 and are working towards obtaining our 501c3 with the IRS. It has been incredible to see what has come from a simple idea to create a space to talk about why violence happens. Over the next eleven days we will highlight some of the other achievements of the last year, but today we are thankful to be here.
