Community is defined as the following:
1) A group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common.
2) A feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals.
So what breathes life into what can be cold or dusty definitions of community? It is us: our presence matters and is what can make the difference between lifeless buildings, cold hallways, and our neighborhoods that call us to action. We have an influence on the systems around us (education, local government, employment, medical, and more) as the cells in our body have an influence on our health and well-being. It is an illusion that we are alone and powerless. Let’s work together to keep our community vibrant and healthy.
I #LoveLansing and it’s an honor to live and serve this community.
It's an honoring to serve the Greater Lansing community and sometimes I am recognized for my service.
