Mentoring twins was an eye opener

I first met them about a year ago last year. They were the epitome of youth: energetic, exuberant, poised to conquer the world, eager to learn and experience everything that they can possibly learn and experience while deeply rooted in the moral compass and Christian ethics instilled in them by their parents.
