“Today we are on the edge of a new revolution. We are captive to the idea that if we connect each other together with caring love, we can stop the disintegration of our cities and grow a new model of community. Thank you for joining us. I know that with your help we can succeed. (Mack McCarter, founder of Community Renewal, the “We Care Team”)
Our September 2022 Message of Inspiration:
1) recognition and appreciation to a Cheverly town organization, resident, or employee for contributions to us all – This month we recognize The Cheverly Village, an organization that enables seniors to remain in their homes as long as possible. Thank you to all who help this organization operate.
2) historical information about our nation – The Statue of Liberty, a gift from France to NYC – “The New Colossus” by Emma Lazarus is held by Ms Liberty. “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free. The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me. I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” America welcomes the poor and needy.
3) appreciation of a national or international celebration – Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month 2022 with M-NCPPC, Department of Parks and Recreation! Learn about the diverse Latino cultures in Prince George’s County and attend an event.
4) an action you can take to promote peace in yourself, your family, and the world – Have your family do secret Random Acts of Kindness for each other. Keep a kindness jar and add a marble each time an act is done. When the jar is full, celebrate together.
