Urban Renewal brings thoughts to most peoples minds of rebuilding cities, restoring them. Putting money into blighted areas that need an economic boost.
I have a different perspective on Urban Renewal, and I would like to share that with you.
Urban Renewal can also mean a rejuvenation of a community. Lending a helping hand to a neighbor who is suffering. How many times have we caught ourselves gossiping with others over coffee about someone’s misfortune? I know I am guilty of it. Instead of needless chatter we should take the attitude of renewal. Our neighbor’s problem today could very well be our problem tomorrow.
Taking pride in ourselves and doing the next right thing our the foundations of a strong nation. Urban Renewal doesn’t begin with big grants, it begins with us.
