It is easy to think of children when we think of balloons, but after reading the following piece of good news, we may only ever again think of one child.

The story was uplifting, and I was honestly blown away by how much this girl has already done. I have no doubt she'll accomplish her goal of becoming a marine biologist. She's also a great example of the impact individuals can have when they decide to make something happen.
I applaud and thank Cameron for helping make dreams of a better tomorrow, not the balloons of today, take flight.
