love [luhv] noun

  1. A profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person.
  2. A feeling of warm personal attachment or deep affection, as for a parent, child, or friend.


To love a person is to want only the very best for them. Sometimes we find ourselves walking the line between what we or the individual would prefer and what is best for the individual. In these circumstances we must remember that love is selfless; it is not bound by convenience, and will not give way to complacency. Love must daily be strived for and will only be attained with great effort. Love is a noun, but it is uniquely also a verb. To love (verb) a person is the only way to build your love (noun) for that person.

Our philosophy has always been that if you empower each individual by giving them good choices, ease them to the outer reaches of their comfortable boundaries, and expect them to succeed, you foster an environment that is conducive to aiding each individual beyond their own anticipated limits.
