" I’ve been living in this building for almost 10 years now. When I heard that the old playground was getting torn down it made me sad. I felt like it was a safe place, a place where so many memories were made in so many ways for so many people in the building. I decided to join our Playground Committee in hopes of getting a new playground for the kids of today and the next generation. Little did I realize that the next generation is me. I recently found out that I’m pregnant, and now this playground has extra meaning to me - in the very near future it’ll be me taking my own kids to the playground to play. It will mean a lot when I can tell my future kids that I had something to do with the playground that they’re playing in. That I thought of them even before I knew my child existed. How I washed cars, baked cupcakes, and posted signs to raise funds and awareness to help build a playground that they are playing on. This is where not only where they will make new memories but also where they will build new friendships".
