Celebrating a friends birthday (happy 23rd Tracy) - we headed to Coffee Strong.
Okay, so from the outside and the inside there isn't much to blog home about - and I can't even vouch for their coffee because they don't have decaf since they are a non-profit and so they can't afford to have a huge inventory and I'm sure most soldiers who are headed for coffee - want it strong - coffee strong and not weak sauce decaf.
BUT their mission and vision -
Pro-Soldier * Anti-War
I'm a fan.
They are smack dab in tear-inducing Tillicum providing a space and much needed hope for soldiers and veterans.
There was a plethora of mental health literature and tattoo service cards.
And their posters of justice or the lack thereof - makes you stop and think....
Would you rather be in prison or go to war??
Seriously - would love to know your thoughts.
And even with all the stories of brokenness and pain shared - they are still keeping it real with a bit of levity and humor:
