  • Still Waters Run Deep: Compassionate hearts unite

  • After a nice weekend of barbecues, family time and fireworks, I was able to start the workday on Monday with an even bigger smile.

    Cinema 6 played host to Dyberry Day Camp to see “How to Train Your Dragon 2.” I was there to do a story and enjoyed seeing the campers.
    Some of them I know very well from my brother's experiences at the camp and his bowling group.
    Tim Dulay, owner of Cinema 6, said it's a great time for the kids and he's happy to be part of it.
    I give Tim and Cinema 6 a lot of props for helping Dyberry Day Camp. It's so nice to see the compassion people have for these kids.
    The organizers of Dyberry Day Camp and the individuals who come to help at the camp do an excellent job providing a fun environment for the kids and helping them grow.
    Whenever I see people taking pride in being around individuals with disabilities and working tirelessly to help them, it warms my heart.
    There are too many negative things in the world and a number of people would rather push these individuals to the side than give them a chance.
    I think there's a greater satisfaction knowing that through all that, there are still people who care and give them a chance, no matter their physical or mental condition.
    They realize that disability or not, we are all people and every one of us deserves to be loved and accepted.
    The joy and excitement in these kids' eyes as they were preparing to see the movie is enough to make you tear up.
    I am very happy to know these individuals and learn from them every day.
    All you have to do is open your heart to them and they will love you forever.
