The strength of a community

20130604-221040.jpg

I had the opportunity to walk though Winnipeg’s infamous north-end yesterday night. I found myself face to face with many different people that walk a much different life than I do.

The area that I walked through is rich in heritage as it was originally settled by mostly Ukrainian families. Many buildings that used to be family stores have been repurposed as houses. The heart breaking part of my journey was how many buildings have been abandoned, vandalized, or destroyed.

However, there are many revitalization projects that have taken place in the northern end of downtown in order to help restore this community to its former glory. It is neat to see that with a little bit of funding, the community can come together to enjoy something beautiful.
