The Redevelopment Seed

An Ode to a Classic Children’s Book, The Carrot Seed by Crockett Johnson, and the Unwillingness to Give Up.

The Redevelopment Seed

A quiet community decided they didn’t like a redevelopment plan.

Some developers came by and said, “They won’t fight it.”

Some unknown politicians came by and said, “They won’t fight it.”

Some vocal community members came by and said, “They won’t fight it.”

Everyday the community talked and planned.

No one saw anything.

No one heard anything.

Everyone kept saying, “They won’t fight it.”

But still everyday the community talked and they planned.

And then

One day

They fought back

Just as they known they would all along.
