So I was coming back from a job I was working some time last year.
I saw the oddest thing- the owner of this store replaced the name of his or her establishment with the quote you see above which reads, “Every Great Accomplishment Is At First Impossible”.
I was taken aback. That’s not what people do. They advertise everything in big bright letters. Neon. ON SALE. and OPEN NOW. and SHOP HERE etc.
Someone, instead, thought of others.
This little message is for the neighborhood- a neighborhood close to one of our many Housing Projects here where drugs are rampant, broken families are the norm, kids have babies and unemployment is high.
It brought a smile to my face thinking of our youth reading this walking by and perhaps finding a source of strength and hope. It certainly changed my day.
A Message To The Projects
