“When you do nothing, you feel overwhelmed and powerless. But when you get involved, you feel the sense of hope and accomplishment that comes from knowing you are working to make things better.” — Zig Ziglar

Feeling overwhelmed? I can relate!

 NON-OBJECTIVE (Focus on BULLYING but use this to demonstrate the GATHERING of the textures – MUST BE “realistic” in nature): https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1ltLnZB4N8wTwxcqF-aepyAdAjKsBYjrYzYP1HgDASvU/edit?usp=sharing
