Convergence RI: A stressful day in the neighborhood
By Richard Asinof
PROVIDENCE - The messages were filled with “aspiration.” In a series of posts on Twitter on Thursday, April 16, and Friday, April 17, Providence Mayor Jorge Elorza wrote about Providence being a “city that cares for the wellbeing of all neighbors.”
“Even when faced with seemingly insurmountable challenges, our local businesses continue to find new and inspirational ways to help keep our community healthy and safe,” Elorza wrote in his first message. “Physical doors may be shut, but Providence is still open for business.”
In his second message, Elorza wrote: “I have seen neighbors and business owners step up in inspiring ways to protect the most vulnerable among us.” He urged residents to share or submit acts of kindness they have experienced or witnessed to a new “kindness portal” created by the city.
