The Courage to Establish and Enforce Values

There comes a point where VISION must become VALUE. Enough talking – it’s action time.

Who are we? What is not acceptable here? What will define us?

True community has always been an essential part of human life and is desperately needed now. Social media can create an illusion of community, without providing the real thing. Communities have boundaries, definitive life-patterns, values. For a community to stay healthy, to head toward an envisioned future, and to be a place where people truly belong, these boundaries, patterns and values must be put firmly into place.

There comes a point where it’s no longer “this COULD be”, but “this WILL be”. The original vision must become a “like-it-or-leave-it” value.
