Average Joe Buckeye Blitz cont. While in Cincinnati, we met with Drew Peters who coordinates programs for the Dorothy Day House for Xavier University students. Peters said students here have spearheaded intitiatives to help with: the environment; AIDS in Africa; fair trade; peace; human rights… Peters invited us back to his two story home, which he shares with three other single men. They live together to share expenses, energy use and develop deeper community. One of the roomates told me while in Portland, Oregon several years ago, he participated in a Shared Housing Program. A computer data base would match those looking for house shares. He said for a year he ended up living with a 96-year-old woman who needed help, companionship and so on. Note: Drew Peters is a lacross player, but not a parent of young children, yet. And as a “campaign donation” this morning, gave our children two junior lacross sticks and a lacross ball. A lacross ball that keeps whizzing by me as we’re traveling down I-75 for a whistle-stop event in downtown Cincinnati today. Thanks Drew.
