I read two quotes recently that speak to my motivation for serving on the board of Eagles Nest.  The quotes said, "We make the future in the present with small gestures of hope” and “The practice of hope may begin with a refusal to accept things as they are.”  This practice of hope is what I see at Eagles Nest, in the staff and our volunteers and that is the mission that drives me as well.
