I'll lean on you and you lean on me and we'll be okay
— Dave Matthews Band
I felt the support of everyone; they were cheering me on, even the kids I didn’t know too well. I tried something I never thought I could do, and because they believed in me, I started to believe too.

At NGFS, we talk about respect in a whole new way, and we have to live it, all the time. Going to school together does not make us a community. We are a community because we have each other’s backs. We may not all be best friends, but we have respect for each other, we know that each of us deserves the time and the space to figure stuff out.
