She said, "I've always felt that it is impossible to engage properly with a place or a person without engaging with all of the stories of that place and that person."
If I have learned anything in beginning this blog, it is that Richmond is full of stories.
We certainly take a shine to our history, but there is more to Richmond than that- so much is happening here now. We are active in forming a community history in each decision we make as a resident of this place. I want to own that responsibility, and I want to be proud of myself and my hometown.
How can we engage with our community? How can we avoid the dangers of a single story?
Mix it up, Richmond! Say hello to someone new. Try a different restaurant. Walk down a different path. Empower each other and share your voice. Be an active listener. Surprise someone and let someone surprise you.
