Ready or Not, Here Comes 2018
2017 has proven to be an interesting year. From North Korea, endless fake news, Trump actually having a fairly strong year completing campaign promises to some local stories such as failed referendums, downtown schools, business growth, new school superintendents, old names exiting politics and new names coming online; I can't wait to see what 2018 brings! It is an exciting time in Southern Indiana, for sure.
I want to take a moment and thank everyone who has made a positive impact in Southern Indiana. I understand that is a subjective statement so allow me to clarify...
If you have had issues and worked in a productive way to reach a compromise, I'm talking about you.
If you brought ideas to the table and have achieved success that has improved our community, I'm talking about you.
If you are someone who has only worked against everything and talked badly about why something shouldn't be or about someone else, then I am not talking about you. At all. Ever. You need to do a lot better. (Everyone reading this has someone in mind. Reach out to them and help them understand they could be more productive by taking a different approach.)
So here's to 2018! May our future be bright. May we all work together for the common goal of improving our community. Even if we can't agree what it is, at least we are working together by hopefully being Open Minded!
