I talk of building and making communities often and maybe you think or wonder my community is great I got everything I need.
Do you really?
Do you ever complain that it is dirty? Or that people don’t care? Do you ever ask yourself why don’t we have this restaurant or store in our neighborhood? Do you think the prices are unreasonable? Is getting around difficult and the public transportation sucks? Can you only go certain places at certain times of day because of safety concerns? Are the schools up to worldly standards? How is the water or do you have to buy bottled? How many people do you know or spend time with in your building or block?
If you don’t like or were able to find something you would like to be better in your community than your community does need improvement.
Your community needs you and you need it no matter how redundant that sounds it is our necessity just as shelter, food and water. Where do you think you live on an island by yourself? Even if do you still have to get along with the animals and plant life because what are you going eat or have for a home otherwise.
It is time to be a part of your community and create a place that everyone wants to call home. A community is your extended family and home whether you like it or not they are coming for dinner and you better be prepared and on your best behavior. Without it are you really the police, fire fighter, teacher, judge, doctor, master chef, grounds keeper, entertainer, trash collector, post person, scientist, mom, dad, uncle, aunt and president all together? If you are where do you find the time? Or do you really understand that you live in a community of people that needs to work successfully together.
