How Can Our Community "Do Better"?

Since last Friday when many of us gathered at Pohanka of Salisbury Automotive for the "We Stand United" event....I've been thinking. Turning over some of the words that were said in my head; tossing around some phrases and statements that were made; wondering HOW does a community "do better". There must be a special ingredient in those select few places where people do, in fact, act and live in a way which promotes open dialog, respect and a culture of togetherness.

There's a question floating over my head, words in a bubble like a giant blimp hovering nearby - and I'm sure I can't be the only one thinking this: "How can we avoid being the next Ferguson, Dallas, Baton Rouge?" Honestly, someone else besides me must have considered the same exact question....right?

  • How do we achieve something different than what other cities have tried?
  • What makes "the dream work" with so many unique viewpoints from all types of people?
  • How is one place different over another that they don't become the next city on the national news?
  • Have you every seen leaders and citizens and residents work together to actually create positive change?
  • Where can we go from here?

Your thoughts invited!

On Friday, July 22nd, Pohanka of Salisbury Automotive invited Delmarva residents to come out and stand with local agencies and departments.



Where do we go from here?
