Pride/relief for my childhood hometown.

Kathy Davis,
St Louis, MO

I couldn’t miss the change of a street sign during my long-overdue visit to my hometown. “Unity Street” had become a recent update as the replacement name for “Division Street”. As a youngster, I was unaware of any implications associated to the original name. But a lifetime later, I was filled with emotion at the first sight of a street sign! Moved, not by a simple signpost or even by the impactful, meaningful name, but by the powerful and affirming message it conveys to everyone, every day, every time.
