Happy Thanksgiving from sunny southern California. Nationals is in full swing and things couldn’t be going smoother. Tonight are the first of the pageant finales and by 2:30pm we will have our first new national queen for the year.
During the Red Carpet Awards Ceremony, Steve Mayes, my national director, asked me to say a few words to the audience. And the words couldn’t be more applicable than now. Please remember that nationals and even the pageant is about so much more than crowns, banners and trophies, it’s about letting these kids know how special we all think they are. It’s about taking every opportunity to applaud these kids..to celebrate them.
I read a great quote the other day on the internet that really brought it home for me. “Kids are the living messages that we send to a time that we will not see.” How true that is, they really are our legacy!
