"Dear POA --
Thank you for remaining positive and electing to continue engagement with the communities you serve so well. Perhaps if the potential of each young person is supported by the community, their family and the communities of interest there would be less crime in our City.
It is " better to light one light than curse the darkness" which is what you have done in providing educational opportunities for young people. It is far better than declaring days of honor for victims of societal neglect who happen to also be committing serious crimes. Keep on believing in people - Hopefully it will become infectious and we will all learn to trust and honor each other more!
With Admiration and Hope,
Fr. Mike Quinn,
SF Native & Priest”
