A letter from N Street Village’s CEO, Kenyatta T. Brunson
As we take the first steps toward more freedom from the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s clear that the negative effects are enduring. Losses of loved ones, losses of income, and health challenges have felt overwhelming. Add to that an increased spotlight on systematic racism and civil unrest.
Despite the incredible challenges, we are grateful – and want to express particular gratitude this year on Mother’s Day to all the mothers who taught us, and still teach us, how to weather hard times.
Mothers like Cynthia have shown us by word and deed that we are stronger together, and that without our struggles we would not stumble upon our strengths. The mothers who taught us “never to waste a bad day.” Those who used the lessons of their own experiences to sow brighter days for all of us.
And finally, the mother-leaders who told us – in no uncertain terms – that if all is to be well, and if we’re to reach our vision – then we better get to work.
On behalf of all the mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, grandmothers, and mentors at N Street Village, please consider a gift to the Village this Mother’s Day.
There is always hope – and good change will come – if we work for it. From this Village heart to yours – thank you to all our mothers.
