We Live Here Together
I live in a low-income housing apartment. I have heard comments made about expectations of what people assume my neighbors to be, but I have never had a bad experience. Everyone says hello to me. One time I held the door for a woman taking her dogs out. We exchanged a pleasant greeting and when I got up to my apartment I realized I had left my keys in the entrance door when I opened it for her. I ran back downstairs and the woman was waiting in the lobby for me with my keys. The other day I had my hands full of groceries and a woman walking by pushed the elevator button for me to help me out. Small simple things that say "we live here together."
