EDUARDO, age 16, had been a member of Reality Changers for a month when some old friends came along and invited Eduardo to join them in some mischief. Hours later, Eduardo was arrested on serious trespassing charges and suddenly faced six years in prison. At court, he presented his lawyer with a RC Yearbook. Minutes later, he was asked for three additional copies - the judge and the two District Attorneys wanted their own personal copies!
The judge said that Eduardo would have one month to prove that he was the person described in the Yearbook and not the person that the cops had arrested. In a short time, Eduardo tripled his GPA to a 3.8 and returned with 13 letters of recommendation. This cleared the way for the judge to dismiss all of the charges.
Instead of spending the next few years of his life in jail, Reality Changers sponsored Eduardo to attend a UCSD summer program where he won both top design prizes in his Mechanical Engineering class... and when he attends Forest Home for the first time in just a few short weeks, all of us here at Reality Changers can only imagine what the Kingdom has in store for Eduardo.
