Already Taking Leadership Role

I applaud Ann Hollingsworth in her appeal to help the owner of Rice’s Woodworking. That is one of the signs of true leadership. We Americans are quick to lend a hand to those overseas who misfortune falls upon, but here at home it is a different story. With cuts being made on both the State and Federal level for social programs the need here at home is greater than ever. If you happen to fall into the category of the working middle class you need to be absolutely destitute before you are eligible for government help of any sort.
We all should try to think locally rather than on a national or international level. One of the most attractive aspects about living here in the mountains is the willingness of neighbors to help neighbors. If everyone thought about making their little part of the world just a bit better, we would all be so much better off. If one works and has a catastrophic illness or serious misfortune befall them we as a community should band together and try to help.
If the whole world began to think locally, then the global situation would take care of it’s self.
