This I Believe: Community
By Frederic Reamer
Providence, RI – The wisest among us have learned to appreciate every single one of life's precious moments, knowing full well that our circumstances can change in an instant. Accidents happen, people die suddenly. In short, our lives can turn upside down with little notice. Indeed, this is what happened nearly three years ago to Nancy Worthen, when she learned about her precious daughter's stroke - and about the remarkable power of community in times of need.
A native Rhode Islander, Worthen has worked at the Center for the Arts in Westerly as the Program Director, at the Providence Children's Museum as Operations Director, and most recently as AmeriCorps Director at Ready to Learn Providence. She lives with her family in the Armory.
