Eric Dzenis, Manasquan, NJ, RYLA 2013

“They all loved you before they even knew you.” Those words have yet to leave my heart since the final days of RYLA. It proved to me that the family I had formed over four days, from just initially strangers, was just as strong as the family I had known for a lifetime. RYLA showed me the strongest form of love there is and I am so grateful to have experienced it. Now that I have such love I won’t ever let it from my heart. When I say to myself that “I can do anything”, well, this time I actually mean it. Now, after looking back, I know that I can also love those I’ve yet to meet, as so long as I remember my experiences at RYLA.
