"Missouri Boys State was a pivotal part of my youth. I learned so much about myself and others, as well as government and democracy, during my week in Warrensburg. It makes you more fully appreciate this incredible country in which we live, and this experiment we call democracy. I firmly believe it is an experience not to be missed."
