By Aaron Humes: The young men at the center of today’s Community Resource Hub initiative thanked those present for allowing them to be heard.
Sheldon Sosa, co-founder, explained that many before had not tried to hear from them, and had not, in his words, “planted the bad seed to see if something good would come from it.”
He promised that would be true of this hub, the fishing line that brings the money for the communities and eases the social and economic tension.
A highlight of these events is the passing of the torch from previous hub founders. Today it was Michael Francis from Majestic Alley, whose area was once at war with this area but shook hands with Sheldon Sosa and others and promised to support them.
Mayor Bernard Wagner closed the show by lauding the providing of the “Big O” – opportunity – to be balanced by willpower of those seeking it.
