What is Community?

Community is when there’s a baseball game in the park for preschoolers every weekend

and all the neighbors come to watch.

 

Community is when there’s a neighborhood block party

and everybody brings a dish to share.

 

Community is when you have a horrible lemonade stand

Drinks made from the powder that have been sitting out in the sun for hours

but neighbors still come to buy a cup.

 

Community is when you have an extra hour

and you shovel the sidewalk and your neighbor’s driveway

before the snow gets too heavy.

 

Community is when you bake gingerbread cookies for the whole block

To spread the Christmas cheer.

 

Community.

 

Community is when you do a little extra for your neighbors and work together

And then community can mean that there comes unity.
