Three Line Tale: A Tough Place for A New Gym

Mark and his wife opened a new gym in an area of Los Angeles where most kids either grew up with a gang affiliation or died trying to get out. The gym’s opening was a huge success, and there were so many people, both youngsters and adults, interested in joining that the mats were full the moment after the scissors sliced through the ribbon.

Though Mark was aware his gym wouldn’t make an immediate breakthrough in changing the community’s culture, a sickening feeling filled the pit of his stomach as he approached the gym for its second day of operation, discovering the vandalization that occurred.
