June 20,2007 Presenting the Peabody Vance




Today we were split into different groups. We were told to go out and find different things in our community that represents us well. So we went in our community, we took pictures of all type of things such as people doing work, kids playing, and people just having a good time. I felt good taking pictures of people trying to make our community look better. We even met a generous, construction worker who helped us with the pose they took and he even bought us sodas. Even though, it was scorching hot I still was enjoying my time talking to different adults in the community. Representing not only myself or the group but representing the Summer Youth Program(SYEP)!!!!

Previa, when you wrote about people working, kids playing, and people having a good time, Peabody Vance suddenly came alive in my mind. It reminded me that a community is all about the people who live in it. The story of the construction worker shows that Peabody not only has soul, but it has heart, too.

Thanks!How are your communities in Vancouver?

We have a lot of different communities in Vancouver, just as Memphis has. To be honest, I think most of the communities here don't have a feeling of community. People keep to themselves. Most people hardly know their neighbours. It's very sad.

In our community, most of everybody in the community get along with each other and that's why we have so much love for our community. We are very willing to take an extra step to make our community look better. That is why we are learning about the past history of the community so that we can go and tell people about the history and they can take more pride in their community.
