- Thanks for breaking the ice
Dear Jack, thanks for breaking the ice. I enjoyed myself with the families we worked with. Thank you for your learning experience to share with us to be the best we can possibly be. To be open is hard but you made that easy for us. God bless you and your family.
What an awesome experience. You certainly have a talent for dealing with people and developing rapport in such a short period of time. Many of the students expressed how much closer that they felt to one another as a result of your workshop. It was truly a blessing to have you.
My expectations for the day were that it could get the majority of people emotional which would most likely get me emotional too. Personally I think the most important message you guys were trying to get across was that people have problems in their lives and when you tease them it doesn’t make ...
- Great for boys to be allowed to cry
There should be more things like this & uplifting things for schools on a regular basis. Great for boys to be allowed to cry. They’re always expected to be tough. (original message)

Dear Jack, I would like to thank you for a wonderful and changing day. I know I won’t forget today and change will happen. In the beginning of the day I thought I would be with the people I know. I didn’t know by the end of the day I would have friends ...

- I enjoyed the experience
I enjoyed the experience. This is the first time I attend to a workshop of this nature, and with my daughter! Thank you, Jack. It was a lot of valuable information to absorb in one day. I hope to remember them all or the most important: listening to my daughter.
I would just like to tell you how thankful I am that you guys came here today! You both are brilliant guys and have taught me so much over such a short period of time. I think I’ve learned some of the most important values of life today. This program has opened my ...
- It persuaded me to stop and help prevent bullying
I really enjoyed your program today. It made me realize that people have really serious problems that I never knew about. It also persuaded me to stop and help prevent bullying in G.L. and wherever I do. Thanks, Jack and Jim. (original message)
Aaron age 15, grade 10
Thank you so much. I have felt so alone and unwanted. It’s so hard for me to find that one person that I can talk to. The last couple days me and my mom have been butting heads. She took her anger out on me and hit me. This made me feel so ...
- It has brought us closer together
Thank you so much for coming to our school to run this amazing program. I feel that through this experience, it has brought us closer together as a school, but more importantly, as a community. You’ve brought to my eyes that no matter what happens, no one is really alone. Therefore, no one ...
- It wasn’t boring at all
Hi Jack, I really enjoyed this leadership workshop! It wasn’t boring at all :). The “Cross the line” game made me realize that we’re NEVER ALONE! People will always be there and I know I’ll be there too. I’m going to be my normal self: outgoing, humorous and loving & I promise to ...
- It made me realize what I needed to do
Dear Jack, I wasn’t here for the whole day, but from when I came to the end of day the activities that I did were very helpful. The last game we played, cross the line, was very “intense” because the questions weren’t simple questions, they really made you think and express what you ...
- I learned to be a better listener and a better leader
Dear Jack, Thank you for today. I enjoyed it. I learned to be a better listener and a better leader. At the beginning of the workshop, I thought I’d feel left out. I saw many familiar and unfamiliar faces. I expected today to run more different than it did, but it was interesting. ...
- We all learned something today
Dear Jack, Your workshop was a very good experience for me and I think all of the other girls as well. All of the activities seemed to work well with everyone and I think we all learned something today. The booklet also gave us a chance to express ourselves and learn more. The ...
