What they see: drugs, addicts garbage
What I see: love happiness, dignity
What they see: confusion, needles,
mental disorders & disease
What I see: beautiful people, fruit
trees, passion for what they believe + many talents not yet perceived.
What they see is death, poverty,
homelessness & dysfunction
What I see: human beings living
rich in spirit, housed by God in need of patient encounters
What you may see: plenty of togetherness, love, dance, laughter, helping hands,
joy, talent, & plans to make this a better
community for all to see.
