ABC News

At the training session for Volunteers for Youth:

COORDINATOR: Okay, we weren't expecting this, but there's a camera guy here from ABC News. Anyone want to do an interview?
ME: Sure
ABC: Why should kids have mentors?
ME: 'Cause like everyone needs a someone out there saying like you can do it or to just try to... I mean... [Now totally not saying what I am trying so very hard to say:] They should learn to just no go on.

I don't know where it came from or really remember what I was actually trying to say, but basically I told ABC News that kids should just learn to accept defeat. Wonderful.

Wow. If I had known it was that kind of volunteer organization, I really would have changed my plans and gone with you last night. I can get behind convincing kids to just not bother trying. THAT I can handle. You're going to be a really amazing mentor to some and up and coming n'er do well.
