This morning I spent a few hours at the park across the street, doing repairs on the community built playground that I got to be a part of 3 years ago. It was one of the most amazing 5 days of my life. I met some incredibly nice and giving people and got to be reminded of how a community can pull together and do amazing things. The park across the street from my house was nothing more than a large campground for homeless transients, who used the park to drink and do drugs in. This city park has been around for many years and has beautiful established trees throughout, but because it had been taken over by less than savory people, it never got used by the children it once attracted.
