We at Bravo, Broad Street, and especially Sal and Mookie’s have witnessed and are proud to be a part of the revival of Fondren. On a small scale, our team, our neighbors, and our patrons have demonstrated that a few dedicated people and businesses can band together to restore, rebuild, and redefine a community. Next week, we are looking forward to celebrating in true Sweet Potato fashion during the First Annual Zippty Doo Dah Parade and Festival Weekend. But every day we draw closer, our excitement is tempered only by the tragedy in our global community.
In a recent article here on FindItInFondren.com, Terry Sullivan, wrote, “If I had to define responsible living, I would say it is living in a way where your decisions have character and integrity. It is understanding that we live on a connected planet where everything you do ripples through your neighborhood, city, state, country and beyond. Living in Fondren, I find it easier to make those decisions.” We wholeheartedly agree, and so during this next week of celebration we want to do our part.
