I thought of this the other day while driving. You can’t spell community without you n i. The letters y-o-u-n & i all make up the word community but I think the concept of community really comes down to you and I. I hear a lot of people talk about the change they want made to their community and then they never pursue it beyond just the talk. They wait for the Associations or governing board members to do something. But it isn’t the association that lives in your home. A lot of times the members of the board don’t live there either. A community has to be maintained and upheld by the individuals living in it.
You and I!
We need to live together, respect each others space, be prepared to roll up our sleeves and get dirty along side each other and be open-minded to each others ideas and remember to keep the greater good of the community in mind. Together we can make it the greatest community it can be and something for future residents to strive to be a part of.
It takes you ‘n’ I to make community.
