People power at Northcross Mall.

February 10th, 2007

The other day I mentioned the slate of activities planned for today by RG4N. This morning at 10 a.m., my little family of four joined 2,000 of our neighbors on the public sidewalks around Northcross Mall to encircle it. We ended up standing next to another family of four who we know from my kids’ elementary school. The whole outing was characterized by good organization, good order, and good cheer. A second-grade girl we know played slightly off-key on her bagpipes. (!) Smiles were the rule of the day.

I was proud to stand out there in the sunshine with my children. I am proud that my neighbors are asserting their voices in the future direction of our neighborhood.

Whatever the challenge in your neighborhood is, stand up and take action. Don’t expect life to turn out the way you want it to just because you want it that way. You have to make your life.
