Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

When Kids Are Heroes

There are all kinds of heroes. There are the soldiers and military leaders of our nation who sacrifice daily for America. . .those who top the list at the heart of Awakenings. Each was once a child...

Then, not to be overlooked are the unsung heroes. . .those who are the quieter type of hero acting on impulse without thinking other than righting a wrong, bettering a situation or lending a helping hand in times of need. Each was once a kid...

Of course, you might readily connect to the superheros featured in the comic books and movies. . .those who test the realm of mysticism and provide insight into a world of imagination. Each reach out to the youthful heart...

Each of us was once a kid. . .we possibly connected with a hero. . .we may have even been a hero. Now we may have a kid(s) of our own. . .our hero(s). When Kids are Heroes, each one has the power to change the world!  

"These are the children who are making a difference through their selfless acts of giving. These kids are drilling water wells in Africa, helping orphans in India and building homes in Haiti. They are recycling and cleaning up their neighborhoods, helping their local animal shelters and making life better for their neighbors. And guess what? They are ALL just like YOU!!!"
