Another violent weekend in Baltimore – 17 shootings and four lives lost – and a recent editorial in The Sun (“Aerial surveillance is not the answer to city’s crime problem,” 10/15/19), which highlights the irrationality and ineffectiveness of the proposal to put “spy planes” back in the sky over our city, made me think in new ways about the life-saving and life-enhancing work Caroline Center does each and every day.
Welcome to The Breakroom. Have a cup of coffee with us and discover what it takes for women to create better lives through meaningful work. In The Breakroom, you will find everything about women and work except the gossip. Come to The Breakroom to hear personal stories, to get the facts, to understand the challenges and struggles, to be inspired and enlightened – and, hopefully, to connect with the people and a small, but powerful place in Baltimore that will change your life for good.
A new blog post will be ready for you each month, and I invite your comments. From time to time, I’ll include a photograph of the world-in-miniature that exists in the two-and-a-half miles along Greenmount Avenue between my house and Caroline Center on Somerset Street. Greenmount Avenue is a panoply of daily life in Baltimore. Everything that can happen happens here.
