After reading the sample profile by Stockton, I realized how important we need to be when it comes to recognizing other people's emotions and/or needs.
"More than 14,000 residents with violent and addictive pasts have graduated from Delancey Street moving on to restore family lives" (Stockton).
The above quote really stood out to me because it is amazing that such a vast group of people graduated and helped other people lead better lives. This is what all people should do because of how important it is to help one another. Stockton used quotes and passages that really made me connect with the story. It was a short profile, but emotionally moving.
Just imagine if there were thousands of "Delancey Streets?" The world might be a better place.
