The Backstory

Your Life Matters came about during the very early morning of June 10th, 2015, under the name We Are Not Just Friends, We Are Family. A few friends of mine suggested to me a couple weeks before then to make a page separate from my other page I have on Facebook (Colleen’s Martial Art Corner). So, very early Wednesday morning on June 10th, I created We Are Not Just Friends, We Are Family with martial artists in mind, for I myself am a martial artist. During a conversation I had earlier in the day, it was suggested I broaden the page, since I already had a martial art page, which did make sense. But I didn’t know what to broaden it to.
