- I never expected to actually learn anything about myself or my peers
Dear Jack, To be completely honest, I thought this day would be light, fun and cheery. I never expected to actually learn anything about myself or my peers. I thought it would be just a bunch of games no one took seriously. I’m glad I came today because I was able to express ...
- So much fun!
“I was surprised an emotional day could be so much fun!!”
- I thought this was a fantastic workshop
Want to let you know that I thought this was a fantastic workshop and that I 100% agree with what you are trying to do. I believe everyone benefits. The benefits for us would be great but it would be another way of working with DB to breakdown biases resulting in more students ...
- We were able to reflect, feel empathy for others as well as understand more deeply
Thank you for providing the time on Tuesday for us to get to know each other at a different level. The activity of crossing the line of humanity was particularly meaningful and certainly put us in a place where we were able to reflect, feel empathy for others as well as understand more ...

Well this is second time coming to Quest I’m On and all I can say is you got me again! You guys are probably the best speakers I have ever heard and you just inspire me so much to grow and do something like this when I’m older. The hardest parts of today ...
- I promise to be more caring, loving and welcoming
Dear Jack, Thank you so much for this experience… though I did not like the last game because often times I don’t like expressing my feelings. Sometimes I feel very alone even though I still have so many friends and I know they will always support me. Often times, I don’t feel like ...

- Jack, you have the most amazing job
Jack, you have the most amazing job and you also seem to have an incredible talent for reaching young people. Reading these letters has motivated me even more. In fact, here is my letter to you… Dear Jack, How can our school ever thank you for making our girls realize their worth and ...
- 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.
Today helped me realize that I’m not the only one struggling with situations. Now I have some people I might go to for help that I wouldn’t have before. It helped me also realize people are being judged for more than race or gender. My friends helped me do this allowing me to ...

Dear Jack, Thank you so very much for all that you have taught me. Personally for myself I learnt a lot about me, and started looking at things from a different point of view. I think that from this day onward I will take into consideration people’s feelings, and the way I look ...

Dear Jack, Thank you for all the things you taught us. This day was kinda fun so far. I promise that I will talk or support the people who have problems or something. And I promise that I will change myself. I will not be shy anymore. (original message)
It was great to let our emotions just be free for a day!!

- Finding these people that understand is wonderful
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 ...
