The recent divisive election impacted many, especially underserved groups such as immigrant and refugee communities. It is a good time to ask what we can do to make our neighborhoods, streets, places where we gather, a welcoming place for all. There are many ways to nurture goodwill which helps to cultivate hope in difficult times.  Our nearest neighbors are a great place to start. It could be taking the time to greet those who you have not had the opportunity to meet or chat with.
Promoting inclusion, connection, and compassion shows how people turn a place into a community.  
Thank you for your commitment to community!
~Warm holiday wishes to all
