If you missed it, the Church Hill and Fairmount Senior Citizen house had no air conditioning in one of the hottest days of the summer so far. A call to action by Maurice Tyler on Facebook started a show of community that really makes you love this neighborhood. From the moment the post was up, several neighbors propelled into action with water, fans, coolers and ice. The community’s AC is back on.

I Sitting here thinking all choked up and tearing up thinking about how the community, the people and social media CAME to the rescue of the less fortunate. The inbox message and the Facebook post just melted my heart They want us to believe that one group hate the other group they to do like that one because he hate your kind. I find that they are lying to us, I realize that the big picture is separation, I realize that we the community’s in every city and every state are being played like a big game of divide and conquer. Trust me when I say the community showed up for CHURCHILL yesterday and there are people who’s day is a lot better because of it, As humans and people of moral base we must understand we are different because no two beings are alike not even twins and understanding that we are different and focusing on our similarities we can move forward and grow as a community. Once again thanks everybody and promise a big cookout to celebrate this day.
