Much to my belly's delight, I stumbled on a block party this Saturday in the Pelham Parkway Section of the Bronx. The residents on the block organized an international pot luck food festival as the children enjoyed various play stations and flags representing their diverse background flew overhead. In a time when Americans could have chosen to let their diversity divide them, they chose to make it a strength. Kudos to the residents on Young Avenue between Astor Avenue and Pelham Parkway North. Hopefully our world leaders can learn from their example. The timing could not have been better.
