It is not easy to step up and make a difference. In the wake of the devastating flooding and wild land fires that have affected so many Coloradans one student decided to make a difference.
Dylan Purkey, a sophomore at South High School in Pueblo, Colorado is an active student with a strong sense of community. He could not sit back and ignore the plight of those affected by the recent disasters in Colorado. "When I saw what was happening in northern Colorado where people were forced out of their homes not knowing if, or when, they would return," Purkey said. "I knew I had to help."
