Baltimore archbishop spreads needed hope

Thank you, Archbishop William E. Lori, for advocating for positive stories to be told about the good works happening in Baltimore (“To change Baltimore, change the narrative,” Jan. 17). I, too, have noticed an incredible uptick of good will and volunteerism. Yet the city is consistently painted with broad, bleak strokes. Before we can dream of improving Baltimore’s reputation nationally, we must improve it among our residents. Hope is a powerful thing. Let’s spread it around.

Perhaps the archbishop would entertain the idea of a weekly column highlighting a different organization, service, volunteer, event, success story, etc. As an occasional reader of the paper, this would be a column I would seek out each week.
