It’s time to show my pride for my neighborhood. Some time ago, I found complete peace with telling “outsiders” where I live (in a city where people are judged based on address, and not occupation).
I want to encourage my neighbors to take pride in their choice to stake a claim here: no more making excuses to people who give a negative reaction to our neighborhood. We chose to live here, it was not our only option. We all saw something in this neighborhood that spoke to us. Whatever that was, we should embrace it!
