“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”
The Whatcom Dream encourages all members of our Whatcom County community to seek understanding of one another and find beauty amidst every person’s struggle.
Our next Poverty Simulation Event will be Saturday 12:00pm-3:00pm October 26, 2019 at Christ Lutheran Church in Ferndale.
