I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I fall in.
I am lost….I am helpless.
It isn't my fault.
It takes forever to find my way out.
I walk down the same street.

I pretend I don't see it.
I fall in again.
I can't believe I am in this same place.
But, it isn't my fault.
It still takes a long time to get out.

In doing so, how can these same partners and communities hold us (outsiders) more accountable… Continue
