Neighborhood Manifesto

I want to live in a neighborhood where the entire block is decked out in Christmas lights and holiday cheer.
I want to live in a neighborhood where the swat team doesn’t have to storm the house next door because the neighbors are cooking meth in their kitchens.
I want to live in a neighborhood where summer is barbecue season
I want to live in a neighborhood where my kids can play outdoors without fear of kidnapping, molestation or verbal abuse.
I want to live in a neighborhood with family’s and children my kids can grow up with
I want to live in a neighborhood that appreciates large backyards and believes in the value of the front porch
I want to live in a neighborhood where obtaining an education is the NORM
I want to live in a neighborhood where family’s take cool vacations and children are cultured for it
I want to live in a neighborhood where people, garden, ride bikes, walk dogs and sit on their porches in the evening time
I want to live in a neighborhood where
people are actually decent


Why do we settle and glorify broken homes?
Why do we think that dropping out is okay?
Why are we so comfortable with unstable family models?
Why are we okay with people who take no interest in their child’s development?
When did unsafe neighborhoods become the norm?
I’m tired of trying to model my standards after these things and being called pretentious and snotty because I paint over gang graffiti, take care of my home and aspire to better my community

"Stop thinking you need people – get it out of your head. Just live your life, beautifully. Make yourself happy because you’re never promised that you’ll find someone who can do that for you. & even if you do find that person – you could loose them. Stop depending on anyone else in your life to determine your happiness and start looking in the mirror at the most important one. Just be patient, & in time you’ll come across someone that feels right – & without even knowing it you will have picked someone who compliments you, rather than trying to find someone who completes you."

“I think the most amazing fact I learned was that they have a part of the brain that we don’t have—a part that we can’t even identify. This suggests that they sense, understand, and even feel more than we do. It still blows me away to think about it.”—Gabriela Cowperthwaite, Director of Blackfish

One of the greatest inspirations you can know is that of the beauty in nature.
