Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes

Change is inevitable. Anyone who tells you otherwise is either too young to know any better, or old enough to be blatantly lying—either to you or to themselves.

#WATWB: When community is family

This is my first official post for the We Are the World Blogfest, and I thought I'd start it out right in my own backyard. Sometimes I forget that there are good things happening nearby.
