The Whatcom Dream

“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.”

Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

The Whatcom Dream encourages all members of our Whatcom County community to seek understanding of one another and find  beauty amidst and throughout every person’s struggle.
