I can never be too grateful for the way in which my days start. Invariably, they begin with a series of “Hi” and “Good morning”, which commence at the top of the Kosasa Neighborhood and accompany me all the way to my office in Castle. The regularity of this welcome moves me each and every time. From day to day it includes different children, of different ages, at different points along the way, yet it is consistently earnest, full of recognition and full of warmth. I can’t help but think that these greetings represent more than common courtesy. They reflect knowledge about connection, communication and community.
