tikkun olam

walking the streets of walnut hills, fried green beans, long discussions with laura, people who spend their lives serving others, coloring sidewalks and brick buildings with chalk, playing ashka with a bunch of wild kids, rocking a crying girl, the resiliency of toddlers (even when its limits get severely tested), spending an afternoon with a couple dozen homeless kids whose bodies whirled around the jungle gym almost as fast as their emotions, ben and kristen and their loud and crazy household full of kids and dogs and life and love, and the fact that doing all this stuff and seeing all these things and being a part of all these efforts at restoring the world...is my JOB.


BVSers Ben, Anne, Katie and Laura, the Ohio River, and Kentucky.
