Interesting Mission Statement

stc-logoHere are the beginnings of an interesting mission statement from Serve the City, a service-based project headed up by a friend of mine in Brussels, Belgium. Quite the challenge.

There’s a line in every city
that separates the rich from the poor,
the strong from the weak,
the haves from the have-nots.
It’s a street, the train tracks,
the river, a sidewalk.

On one side there is safety,
on the other there is danger.
On one side there is security,
on the other, fear.
On one side kids go to college,
work pays well,
needs are hidden behind drawn curtains
and consumable goods.
On the other life is pretty raw.

It’s time to cross the line.
