Tell Us a Little About This Mural:
When I first thought about the message of “Cabot Strong”, I was thinking about each person and their influence. I was thinking about the gifts and talents and time each person has to offer this community. I was thinking about what would happen if each one of us really understood how much we were NEEDED to make this community all it can be. How… this city simply CANNOT reach its full potential if it’s people don’t genuinely feel like they are wanted. You don’t just live here… you are WANTED and it makes a difference in how you interact with your community if you feel like your presence is valued. What if you started believing those things?!!! Wouldn’t you feel like YOU BELONG? Like you are part of something bigger than yourself… like you have the power to bring positive influence to those around you… like your strengths, combined with the strengths of every other person in our city, have enormous potential to create an extremely STONG AND UNITED CABOT?!!! I believe you would! I believe it’s already happening and believe there will more and more people who will feel like they WANT to and NEED to share themselves. CABOT will be STRONGER than ever and more people will truly feel that THEY BELONG
