Amazing Story of Perseverance
 
Been a lot of bad news around here lately. This is an amazing story of hard work, volunteerism and, generally, an example of what can be accomplished when people refuse to surrender to their surroundings. Also an example of how government & volunteerism [I]can[/I] and should work together.

It's the story of some inner-city kids and their 10 year struggle to accomplish an incredible goal. As a setting, I live near the Waverly area they are talking about and it is a harsh, harsh neighborhood. Truly an amazing accomplishment in light of all the knocks against these kids.

Well, I was hoping this would lead to a discussion of how govt., private enterprise and individual effort [I]can[/I] create societal benefits. But I guess discussing the thread title is more interesting. :)

Yours usually lead to clever wit and laughs. JR's was just mundane.
