"A voice in me said, You have to rise to the occasion or the best in you will die. We always have that voice; we just have to make a choice to listen to it. We all have it; that's God's given light. It's just whether you have the courage to step into your destiny."
"It seems that in connecting to what is true within myself, I help other people to connect. Making genuine connection lies at the beginning of building a real community."
- Lily Yeh, artist
The park blossomed into The Village of Arts and Humanities, a community-based art organization that Lily co-founded in 1989. Lily, neighborhood residents, and staff have transformed more than 120 abandoned lots into gardens and parks. They also have renovated abandoned homes, and created educational programs, art workshops, after-school programs, a youth theater, and joyful community celebrations. Today, the Village of Arts and Humanities serves thousands of low-income people every year.
Yep, the courage is all part of the package. The courage will come once you have made the right CHOICES. The courage is within you and is one of the GIFTS I told you MSOT will give you when you answer the door. It should be starting to sink in. It should be helping you to answer the question you should be asking by now:
Am I ready to begin my own Journey ???????
Have you found your work of Art yet ???????
