We Love Long Beach: Pocket Community Quotes

Community is a place where people can live truly as human beings, where they can be healed and strengthened in their deepest emotions, and where they can walk towards unity and inner freedom. As fears and prejudices diminish and trust in others grows, the community can radiate and witness to a style and quality of life which will bring a solution to the troubles of our world. The response to war is to live like brothers and sisters. The response to injustice is to share. The response to prejudice and hatred is forgiveness. To work for community is to work for humanity. *Jean Vanier

The True joy in life:

This is the true joy in life, being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one. Being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances, complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it what I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.

George Bernard Shaw

Book for June... Not May, but June.. get it, got it, good!

The Book 0f the month for June:Ella Minnow Pea: A Novel in Letters by Mark Dunn :Ella Minnow Pea' is a delightfully diverting novel filled with wit and imagination. Its lovingly crafted structure is a real breath of fresh air -- one would be hard pressed to find another book like it out there. One must admire Mark Dunn not only for his lively imagination but for his awe-inspiring power over words. It is fun to see how he manages to continue telling his story while avoiding use of a growing number of letters in the alphabet. Never once does his prose sound forced or simple, even after he must resort to using his remaining letters to phonetically sound out his words. The plot (citizens on an island off the coast of the US rebel after their government begins restricting their use of the alphabet) could have easily been silly, cliched and like a poor man's 'Animal Farm' but instead forges out its own solid identity and endears itself to the reader through its inventiveness and wit... The date for our June meeting is Monday, the 30th from 7-9pm.
Meeting places: Aroma Di Roma, 5327 E. 2nd Street, Long Beach, CA 90803 And a our second location at Vint's also on Monday on Second Street, Vint's American Grill 4722 E. 2nd StreetLong Beach, CA 90803... Please come join us... All are welcome if you have read the book.

What is We Love Long Beach about?

We Love Long Beach is a community based group that is about creating safe and welcoming environments, where we as neighbors can get to know and serve one another. There is so much fear and individualism that exists in our city. We recognize these issues as serious, and that is why we want begin to address them.
We are attempting to do so by having Neighborhood Breakfasts, BBQs, Book Clubs, Helping the Homeless, and in the future we hope a lot more...
We understand that it takes our community to join in with us, so that we can begin to find out what it means "to be a good neighbor".
If you are interested in helping out or donating to our cause-- to a better Long Beach-- please contact us:

We Love Long Beach Presents: LB BBQ

The BBQ is from 1-4pm I hope that we see you there..."Spread the Love"
