This Week…It’s All About Us
Ok, this is a shameless plug for this month’s May ActiveRain Challenge…Getting to Know You that Carol Williams and I are hosting. We’re having so much fun reading all of the posts, we want more!!!
There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about. Margaret J. Wheatley
The posts I’ve been reading have reminded me of what a special community ActiveRain is. It’s been fun learning that Jim Paulson attended kindergarten in Saigon or that Beth Atalay has a strong sixth sense! I want to know more about Jim and Beth.
We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men. Herman Melville
I’ve never met either Jim or Beth but I feel like I know them. They are a part of the community.
That’s the wonderful thing about this Cyber neighborhood. Just like the actual neighborhoods we live in, we support each other when it is needed.
The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members. Coretta Scott King
We cheer each other on with each new listing. If you have a question about a new computer program or a question about a transaction, this cyber neighborhood is there to offer help.
Communication leads to community, that is, to understanding, intimacy, and mutual valuing. Rollo May
Getting to know the other members at ActiveRain is what elevates this from being just a blogging platform to the caring and nurturing group that it is.
Where would we be without that sense of community…of belonging?
Every successful individual knows that his or her achievement depends on a community of persons working together. Paul Ryan
Have a glorious weekend!
