I truly commend those who were able to attend Tuesday’s PC meeting and so hope others will make the commitment to attend on the 9th. I had some people ask me Tuesday evening: ‘Is this doing any good?’ and I sensed the discouragement from the dark cloud that looms over us all.
I thought of the question again: is this doing any good? Here is my crystal clear and unwavering answer: YES. IT. IS. And no matter how small you think your part may play in all of this, it matters- your attendance and participation matters. We have made a difference. And we will continue to make a difference. Though I cannot guarantee the outcome will be what we all want in a perfect world, I guarantee fighting this fight is how we keep what we value.
