The ones who came before the ones who came before

| No Comments

A thought ocurred to me while reading something from a neighborhood email list. The topic was neighborhood change or gentrification. There was a polite request that newcomers respect the ones who came before and acknowledge the residents who came before. There are also calls that the next generation of residents preserve and celebrate a particular slice of neighborhood history. So I wondered, did the residents who we are to remember do the same for the ones they replaced?
