Ricky Roberts III is an author, youth advocate, mentor, speaker, and founder of You Are Valued, a nonprofit organization devoted to creating positive change by embracing the value of every man, woman, boy and girl. The vision is a more peaceful world free of familiar cycles of abuse, neglect and violence where everyone sees the value in who they are and appreciates the same in others. Robert’s mission in life is to encourage people to see the greatness in who they are and what they have to offer the world around them.
My favorite story about Ricky Roberts is a personal one. Ricky and I sat talking about doing things to help others, and he suggested that we say thank you to all people for what they are doing. So, I tried it….and I immediately changed someone’s life. I simply walked up to a man who was working on the road and told him I was grateful for what he was doing, and thanked him for doing it. I then explained all the great things his job allows others to do. This man, a large muscular man with a face worn by many passing cars, smiled and began to cry. He gave me a hug and told me nobody had ever thanked him before, nobody had ever even thought of thanking him.
This is how powerful Ricky’s words truly are.
