IGNITE, UNITE, INVITE!
Despite the odds and against all odds, the community of Hughes, AR is still holding on. We’ve been hit from the left and hit from the right, but because of grace – we’re still alright! We are a community that has had its share of hard times, good times and in-between times. We’ve all have bared witness to seeing our community constantly and gradually decline.
There comes a point where we must ask ourselves, how long will we sit passively on the sidelines. The bench has been warmed for far too long…and now it is in decay. No one person can do what is needed for our community alone. From ward to ward; Men and Women; Girls and Boys; from the youth to the grown – we must set a new TONE.
We each must live with a purpose that is greater than our individual selves. HUGHES HAS WHAT IT TAKES to spark a positive transformation!
We must each IGNITE that spark of fire inside of us! We must work to UNITE with our fellow neighbors of all backgrounds of race, gender, creed and class to kindle and strengthen the flame of the Hughes Community. Then we must willingly and strategically INVITE others to keep the flame burning!
