So we’re embarking on a new adventure. Will Bethesda Green take hold in the community? Can we overcome the economic struggles we’re all facing to make this new venture a viable initiative into the future? Questions we’re all asking as we stand on the threshhold of an Obama Administration that says it’s committed to driving the issues we care about — promoting a green economy that creates jobs, energy independence, and a clean environment. Do we dare to think that our small grassroots effort to engage residents and encourage business to embrace a green ethic will take root and provide a model for other communities in our region to follow?
I don’t know, but despite sitting sitting here in economic turmoil, I’m optimistic about what lies ahead. I like what I see happening and believe it translates to positive change in the future.
