From the Executive Directorof the Campus District, Inc.
In this month’s issue you will nd stories aboutyou, our community, along with powerul words thatwere spoken by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. almostve decades ago. In this month when we honor hislie and contributions, I believe it’s valuable to see himnot as an icon that no one else could ever match indeeds or words. Instead, I see him as someone who islighting the way or the rest o us to be better people,to be o service and to inspire others in the way welive our daily lives.I recently ound these words by writerWilred Peterson that sum up what I have beenthinking about:
“Few o us will do the spectacular deeds o heroism that spread themselves across the pages o our newspapers in big black headlines. But we canall be heroic in the little things o everyday lie. Wecan do the helpul things, say the kind words, meet the diculties with courage and high hearts, stand up or the right when the cost is high, keep our word even though it means sacrice, be a giver instead o a destroyer. Ofen this quiet, humble heroism is the greatest heroism o all.”
In last month’s issue, we told you stories aboutpeople who are some o our community’s local heroes:La Queta Worley, Betty Worley Harris, Jerome Baker,Fred Seals and the Very Reverend racey Lind. Tey work daily being o service to others – in their proes-sions and as volunteers. Tis issue we tell you aboutmore amazing people stepping out o their comortzones and making something new possible by theiractions. You’ll learn about the ve CMHA Choiceplanning interns who took a hard look at the neigh-borhood’s weaknesses and generated ideas on how tomake it better and more beautiul. You’ll read aboutShari Wilkins and Jo Jo Graham creating new waysor people to come together around the arts – Sharithrough photography and Jo Jo through dance. You’llget a little peak into the thoughts o ve people whoshare the places they love in the Campus District andwe’ll show those places to you. And nally, we willcelebrate the new ri-C graduates who are creatingbrighter utures or themselves through education.Please write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 216-344-9200 to let me know aboutother local heroes and interesting people we shouldwrite about, and we’ll do our best to share theirstories with all o you. As we read these words by Dr. King, perhaps we can think about how to makethem real in our own lives.
