“Dominic’s Blue” is the inspiration of a brave little boy who passed away last week on our 2800 block of N. 75th Street in Enderis Park. He was only six. Dominic’s Blue is the unity of a neighborhood when faced with sadness and disbelief.
We asked ourselves; “What can we do for the family?” “How does a neighborhood come together to show support?”
Blue was his favorite color. So, two neighbors thought about shining a blue light in front of their house. A bright blue light at night. A light that represents not only the support of a neighborhood but the light of a small child. It didn’t take much. Knocking on neighbors doors, a few phone calls to the hardware store, a ladder, screw drivers and a bag of blue lamp lights.
One bulb at a time, we lit up the block! As a member of this neighborhood, I personally invite you to drive through, walk your dog, think about what one small blue light can mean to a community. For us, we hope the family knows we keep them in our thoughts and prayers during this time of reflection.
We hope that Dominic’s Blue light is a reminder that life is precious. That neighbors really do care. May whom ever reads this be inspired to reach out to others, you never know who’s heart you will touch.
