After the 22nd school shooting in just the first 20 weeks of 2018, we decided we had to do something. In a team meeting, Dennis (our CEO) said, "Emotionally healthy kids don't shoot up schools. They just don't." And the simple truth of that statement struck a deep chord in all of us.

I grew up in West Texas in the 70s and early 80s. West Texas is comprised of long stretches of desert broken only by oil or cotton fields. The land is harsh and unforgiving. The temperatures are extreme and the heat can be almost unimaginable. And even though there is a lot of oil in West Texas, most of us lived in families that worked in the oil fields for nominal wages. It was a hard life in many respects, because the work was hard and the financial rewards were minimal.
