Count the memories, not the calories...

I believe we all need the warmth of SOCIAL interaction. I believe we all need the freedom to express ourselves and to have access to the ARTS. I believe we all deeply need to feel valued, loved and that we matter. And therefore, I believe if people have all of these aspects in their lives it WORKS!
