On that eventful night in the beauty salon, An Added Touch located at 1380 Old Bridge Rd, Woodbridge, Virginia 22192, owned and operated by Kim Hunter, women poured out their hearts about forgiveness.

Her ministry is called Anointed 2 Laugh, she is a Christian Comedienne. Other women included on the panel were Monica Austin-Cox, Donna Spencer, Katrina Yancey, Lydia Graham, Teresa Edelen, Elizabeth Charity and LaTanya Lewis. Women were represented from all walks of life – veterans, singles, single mothers, divorcees and widows.
Also featuring in the video are men from Church on the Move, located in Woodbridge, Virginia, who were honored women for Mother’s Day. The men serenaded the mother’s with a song called “Prayer.” It all fit together so well - prayer and forgiveness.

The George Mason University Social Entrepreneurship Society invited Artist and Musicians to come and help them fight the social injustice against our teenagers who have made a mistake with the law. Did you know that there are more than 2.3 million non-violent offenders who are incarcerated. The state is spending more money on incarceration than education. For some minor offences our teenagers are incarcerated for life with no parole. We need to get to the root of the cause of the offence and address that need instead of putting them in juvenile detention center and not giving treatment for the cause. Do you think this is the right thing to do? Please view the video and share how you can help to bring a change to this social injustice. What is your answer? We want to hear from you in the comment section.
The GMU SES students are helping Youth Outreach Services to research the question , “To what degree does employment and rehabilitation reduce recidivism”, through an internship to teach the 12 week job readiness mentor program this summer. The students are willing to mentor 25 ex-juvenile offenders and help them receive employment at the Non-traditional Career Center. They will come a part of the healing process by helping to renovate the facility, working at the businesses in the facility and recording data to share their findings with policymakers and legislatures to help stop locking up our youth and start educating them.
