Paris. The “city of light.” Given that nickname not only because of its early adoption of street lighting but also because of its fame as a center of education and ideas, Paris has become a landmark city that is known throughout the world today. Today, Paris draws many different people into its light to discuss thoughts and ideas; arts and politics; choices and decisions. At times these people live side by side. Working together even if they do not agree philosophically or theologically with their neighbor. It is in this lovely dichotomy of the name that Howry is excited to announce the opening of its 33rd home which will be called Paris.
Perhaps Kevyn Aucoin summed it up best when he said, “Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain… To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.” That is our overall aim for each and every member at Paris. That they should be able to make the choice to live their lives in the manner in which they choose. We want them to embrace every single part of it. The good. The bad. The ups. The downs. And know that we will be there right with them through it each and every step of the way.
