“Imagining When” at Salemtowne Retirement Community

Residents at Salemtowne Retirement Community recently used Imagination Installation’s “imagine when” exercise to make dreams for a compassionate community.  These are some of their dreams:


every child in Winston-Salem is fed.


everyone showed more EMPATHY toward one another!


there is no racism.


every neighborhood is safe and clean.


every person has access to excellent health care.


our seniors could be cared for like they have cared for others.


a lot of love is spread among everyone.


school is a safe place.


everyone truly treats others the way they want to be treated.


Every daily activity is as meaningful as the time I spend with you all

here at Salemtowne! Declare it … today will be happy!


Alzheimer’s is cured.


swords are turned into plowshares and people do things which lead to

peace and prosperity.                                                                      


Dads worked and Moms could stay home with the children.


it will not matter whether one is gay or straight.


everybody loves your neighbor.


small children obey their parents!


everybody gives a smile to everyone they meet.


everybody speaks to their neighbor.


everyone practices the “Golden Rule.”


everyone can get along with each other!


people of every color, shape, size and other individualities respect and care for each other.                                                                        


everyone gives without expecting anything in return.                                                        


About compassionatews

Think of a giant umbrella. Under that umbrella are all of the programs and acts of compassion that we see – and don’t see – around us in Winston-Salem.
