At the recent "National Night Out" event that promotes neighborliness and safety, we had a table with a map and sheets that asked "What makes a good neighbor?
The outcome was amazing: Respectful, friendly,watching out for each other, no complaining, sharing, trustworthy, kindness and compassion.
Name a good neighbor: Philys, Oscar & Maria, my grandma ... people who care!
"How many neighbors do you know by name? Was another question we asked. What fun responses!
As we work with community members we discover the many gifts and talents already present in the community. Our big question is: do you your neighbors gifts and talents? Do you know what you all care enough about to act upon?
How can we make that happen?
