What the world needs is more love.
The Bridge of Hope Love Cookies event, February 8, 2017, was designed to encourage, uplift, and focus families on the positive things happening in their community and their individual lives. While decorating cookies together, we engaged families and community residents in positive thought provoking exercises developed to shift the focus from despair and fear to hope and encouragement for the future.
And then, of course, we got to eat the cookies! (which never hurts our attitudes)
This event, like all the Bridge of Hope Community Gatherings, was intended, first, to bring members of the community together so that they see themselves as a community and, second, to focus their community identity in positive and proactive ways.
