We live in interesting, and somewhat scary times, as much of what we know is changing.  Just think about the financial industry (where I spent many years) or the recent riots in London.  Change is not always for the better in our minds.  However, if we want to move forward, survive and thrive in our local or global ecologies we have to choose a positive direction, work together, and compromise.  Nothing is perfect and neither are we.  We all have our strengths and together those strengths can achieve amazing results.  We have to keep in mind that something is better than nothing, and whether it’s a country or community, an association or organization, we can’t just rail about the problems and try to tear down those who have aided in the change; we have to get together and find positive solutions that work for the majority and will survive for future generations.  Are you with me?
