Everybody here "gets it"

A quote from one of the teens at The Teen Summit. 
And it's true-- I'm seeing old friends, making new friends. The kids have ditched us parents and have forged their own battalion. Everything is good. 
 I met a group of moms last night who have an email chain where they share ideas etc every month. 
 And I met a mom who is sure her daughter will warm to the weekend when she sees that other kids in the room-- unlike at school-- have been to the hospital after using an EpiPen. And kids who have more allergies than she does. 
That's what this is all about. And now, with social media-- Facebook, texting, email, chat spaces and Instagram--These kids can keep in touch and be one big support group.
