Last night Jonathan, Shaylyn & I joined the Reeds & others at the kick off of the I Can initiative in Jordanian schools. The concept springboards from a children's book by the same name that tells the story of a young boy who finds inside himself the capacity to create, thus overcoming his fears. The program included traditional dances and songs written for the event. Participants received a bilingual copy of the book along with a commemorative can to spark their own creativity. Members of the Royal Family attended the event along with the Mayor of Amman, who addressed the crowd at the Cultural Palace in the Sports City complex. Linda Reed taught piano lessons to the author's son and wrote the music to one of the songs performed during the show.
