Mayor's Corner 06/23/2016

Dear Friends:

Through the years, I’ve observed that holding grudges can, in a very real sense, paralyze us. Forgiving or letting go of grudges is not for sissies. Gandhi said, “The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”
 
Let bygones truly be bygones. This includes the sarcastic friend who makes fun of you, the ex-spouse who wounded you deeply, and the boss who fired you.  It also includes the client who yelled at you, the judge who fined you, the child who spurned your rules and counsel, the co-worker who slights you or takes credit for your work, and the dad who hurt or ignored you.  Yes, it even applies to how you feel about the guy who tailgates you!

Dear Friends:

Another year of school is winding down.  In every home, anticipation of summer activities leads to discussions of time and money.  As we synchronize our calendars, we are inevitably reminded of promises made, or at the very least, our good intentions to follow through on this plan or that.   
 
Projects long put off seem to scream "look at me” and “remember the plan."  Time seems to shrink, and busy Moms and Dads are stretched and stretched like salt water taffy.  We sometimes fail to realize that what we do as individuals and families contributes to the overall character of our communities.
