When asked what he learned during the event, one participant said, “I always had a negative outlook on everything. So when people, including SOS would approach me to deliver a positive message, I would shun them. Until I was shot and SOS came to see about me in the hospital. So I learned never mind the messengers. Pay attention to the message.”
Participant events are a great opportunity for people in Crown Heights and Bed-Stuy to form connections and think critically about their lives.
