Peace, community, and sustainability begins with us.

How we envision ourselves in connection with others impacts our world.  Are we alone in it, with individual desires and goals that must be attained at any cost to others and our environment?  Or, are we part of a collective humanity, with the common goal of the greater good?  Each person must decide the answers to these questions.

In this troubling time, I believe it is more important than ever to see beyond our individual needs and reach out, neighbor-to-neighbor, to establish how we, as a society, will move forward.  Only by doing so can we create a world in which our children, and theirs, may thrive.  Peace, community, and sustainability begins ultimately with each of us.
