Reflections



It has been amazing to read all of the comments about our Community Unity project so far. The song and video have served to create a catalyst for interaction and reflection on what makes our communities unique and special. As our project develops, we will be posting questions for further personal reflection to deepen our understanding of what community is all about. Thinking about all of your own interests and hobbies, family and friends...


What is your own personal favourite thing about your community?

  19. I live in a community called Eastbourne, East Sussex in the United Kingdom. I used to live in St. James, and my favourite part of living in St. James was all of the great activities you could participate in throughout the year. Watching the planes come and go was pretty cool too!

    My favourite thing about the community I live in now is being right on the sea. You can see ships, sail boats, beautiful white cliffs and amazing sunsets from the pier.

    I have been fortunate to do a lot of travelling in Europe and the one thing that always puts a smile on my face is when I see a Maple tree. Seeing the Maple leaf reminds me of Canada and my family and friends. Although I live in another country now, I am still very, very proud to be Canadian!!!

  20. I live in a community called River Heights, which is in Winnipeg. It is a quiet friendly community that is filled with parks, schools, playgrounds, trees and big old houses.

    Throughout the year, there are always lots of people out walking on the sidewalks - on the hottest summer days and the coldest, snowiest winter days! It seems like everyone I see walking in River Heights either has a baby or a dog (or both) :-)

    I love reading about all of the different communities that people live in... I hope more people from around the world will share what their communities are like!

    I must say, Tracey is pretty lucky to be able to see the sea in her community! Thanks for sharing, Tracey ;-)

  41. I used to live in the Philippines, but now I live in the Brooklands area in Winnipeg Manitoba. It's a great place with lots of nice, caring, understanding people. And compared to where I used to live It's a great place for my little siblings and i to have a great future ahead of us. I've met SO many great people that I'm proud to call my friends, I love the people around me. But, not everyone is as great as others, but I'll understand that there's a lot of other things happening in their lives, so I'll respect that. I'm proud/happy to be living in this Community.

  47. I've lived in the St. James community for almost two years and I love that everything I need is accessible without having to go too far from home. Although St. James would not be considered a small neighbourhood, one cannot help but feel like they are part of a smaller, tight-knit community. It's like everyone is your neighbour, and that is a very welcoming feeling to experience! I love my community! :)
