The PAI event I participated in at Orangewood was such a fulfilling experience. It was immediately apparent as the kids came racing into the gym how much they appreciate "play time." Many of the older kids sat on the sidelines skeptically watching as the program started. It was very cool to see that one by one they joined in the activities as they did not want to miss out on the fun. It was amazing to see how the kids reacted positively to the drills and obediently listened and did what was asked of them.
For two hours I felt like I was able to be a brother, father, or friend to these kids. Whatever I was to them, it felt like I was filling a gap in their lives- at least for a Saturday. I look forward to further participation in PAI events!"
