From Dawn in Burlington’s Old North End…
I am 39 and spent the better portion of my childhood in the ONE. While it had it’s concerns even then, it’s much worse today. However, the core of ONE was good. It seems to be hidden today, but it became clear to me after I found Front Porch Forum that the “core” is still present. It shows in FPF with the support and compassion that is here. I found it comforting to read. I was kind of shocked and a bit saddened upon my return to the neighborhood, but in looking around at the wonderful community building underway on FPF, I’m coming around!!
