Reflections from Students

 
 

"I have always wanted to see the Grand Canyon and I swear when you see it you can't believe it's real.  I thought I was looking at a backdrop or something because I can not even begin to grasp the concept that the Colorado River could carve such a beautiful creation."  Josh

"I want to say thank you to NAFI and the Board of Education and the fellow community members who accompanied me on this trip, because this was truly the best thing that ever happened to me.  The things that I experienced on this trip gave me a better outlook on my life and on life in general.  I haven't had the best life,. . . but this trip took away all of the worry and the sadness of not being home, and I actually allowed myself to be a kid."   Andrew

This donation is a result of John Basilliere's effort in making me aware of the R.I. NAFI network. He attended last years' cross-country adventure and emailed me pictures of the event.
