Stone Soup Bowl
Once, a wandering tramp came nearby a village. He sat down and built a fire and put his soup pot on top of that fire. Into the pot he placed a stone. Soon, a curious villager came out to ask him what he was making. Stone soup! Was the answer he gave. It’s delicious, and you can share it with me, oh but only if we could add a carrot, it would be more delicious yet. The villager allowed as to how he had a carrot stashed away and soon that carrot was in the pot. Along came another villager and this one had onions he had been hiding, and another had beans, and yet another had some spices and soon, the whole community was fed, all because of one stone.
Every time we help a survivor reach their own fullest potential, we’re adding to that stone. We’re making a community based soup and it will take us all to end the scourge of domestic and sexual violence in Clatsop County. Thanks to you, we have a good start. Let’s celebrate it!
