Show it, don't say it
Pictures tell stories and make what you have to say both more interesting and more memorable.
This is a picture from a nearby neighborhood in Seattle. There was this woman, Edith Wakefield, who refused to sell the house she had lived in for decades, even when the developers offered her $2 million.
It's a great story, but there's something about seeing it that really makes it meaningful and memorable.
I found this image using Haiku Deck's integrated Creative Commons image search, which gives you instant access to millions of free, beautiful photos like this, and it also pulls in the photo credits automatically, because I know you don't have time for all that.
