I was feeling upbeat after attending the Top Of The Hill neighborhood association meeting recently. I arrived home and to my disappointment my neighbor’s door had been kicked in and his house ransacked. Only days before I was hanging fliers on door knobs including their very porch.
Although disappointed I am not discouraged. I will continue to hang fliers and pick up trash where needed. But more people need to get involved. There is power in numbers and together we can eradicate the bad element that has infested our community.
