I commend The Forum on a job well done with the "On the Brink" series. Not only did this special series feature and support young people, but it also helped tremendously to promote our area, especially North Dakota, and to promote the fact it is possible for young people to stay here and have a bright future. A recurring element in the series was how the featured young people were either contemplating building their future here, or already were.

As one of those featured, I see the potential these types of news features have in promoting our state's future and our state's young people and their future in North Dakota.

I recommend that The Forum turn this series into an ongoing feature as proof that it is possible for young people to stay in North Dakota and be a success in their lives. It would be something we could all look forward to reading, especially us young people, to inspire us to stay and build our futures here.
