These young people blew us away today. As a speaker at the 2018 Home and Community Based Care (HCBS) Conference at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront, I was expecting a fairly academic and ordinary day. I was pleasantly disappointed.
Scheduled to speak and participate on a panel discussion representing the Money Follows the Person (MFP) project award that I manage as a federal grants officer, I was just happy to be out of the office and meet my grantees. Lunch turned out to be the best session of the day! When we finished eating lunch, we were expecting the normal speeches. People were openly discussing getting caffeine to stay awake! HCBS made our lunch period unforgettable with the attention of this children’s choir to the program. This is just a small snippet of the mini concert during lunch.
These children are amazing! They were clearly enjoying themselves and the standing ovation freely given by the audience expressed how we felt! They are exactly what I needed on a day that started somberly with the news of death in my family. Monday Motivation has a whole new meaning! These young people are truly Baltimore’s Best!
