Brownsville

Imagine

imagineI over hear people on the trains and walking down the blocks explaining how Brownsville is nowhere to stay.  People want to get out of here, not come back here.  This is where you get stuck and forgotten.

Now when I walk down blocks in Brownsville I imagine what it could be like.  I imagine what it would have to be in order to change people’s attitudes.  And I wonder what must come first.

Do the people living in the community have to change their minds about the community first in order for it to change or can changing the community change people’s minds about the community and make them want to stay and take pride in the community?
