After months of training and school district approval, River entered the school building. Immediately, I observed the impact River was making with the students and adults. I sat in awe as 17 year old boys would sit on the floor with him, glancing up at me in the midst of their trauma to say: “He really does make it all better”. River’s influence continued to grow and everyone knew his name. As a result, many people in the school and community were coming to me wanting their own “River”, but there was only one River.
