For me this year has been one of constant inspiration. It has been a challenging year for me, as it has been for many.
As a nation we remain at war. Our local and global economies, so delicately interwoven, are in the midst of a precipitous fall to an unknown bottom. Many of my friends and family are homeless and suffering. And for some, their loved ones will not be returning home.
But in these times of crisis and unexpected loss there are extraordinary opportunities to create lasting and meaningful change. Barack Obama has focused the message of his presidency on Americans sharing a common purpose, that includes a renewed sense of civic and social responsibility, volunteerism, and policies for sustainability.
Promethean was founded on these principles, and of course the principles themselves are not new.
What oftentimes is beyond prediction is the ways in which these principles will be demonstrated by those individuals that choose to adopt and apply them.Â
The caliber of individuals attracted to the cooperative is amazing. It is seeing the growing level of activity, commitment, and sense of purpose that I find inspirational. It has been awe-inspiring to see so many, passing through difficult times, remain so willing to give of themselves to work towards a sustainable future.
Thanks to you all!
