Hump Day

 Today was a rough day. I had to do some technical assistance in a behavioral health setting located in the "hood." I enjoyed meeting the program members. Sorry I can't say the same about the staff. I think that they shared the same bottle of "Hater-ade" this morning. I have to go back there tomorrow. I'm not really looking forward to it.

Philadelphia should be ashamed of itself. The look of defeat and desperation are all over the faces of the neighborhood's residents.  The program members thanked my colleague and I for spreading the message of recovery and wellness. When the workshop was over, I walked through the neighborhood with my head held high. Confident in my stride while trying not to let the surroundings get me depressed.
