What tugs at our heartstrings

Sharing something that just tugs at my heartstrings… when a severely impaired child disembarks -- after having an educational adventure so inspiring that the child forgets all about impairments for a couple of hours and becomes a happy kid interacting with the critters of the sea -- gets about halfway up the ramp to the marina gate, turns back, ambles quickly back down to the SOFTIN crew, wraps arms around us and says, “Thank you. I had fun and I want to go again.”

The SOFTIN crew has been deeply touched by many such emotional displays of honest and unrestrained feelings. After wards, we share a good cry together and thank heavens for being able to do such wonderful good work.
