Primus Mootry: Re-inventing Anderson -- the pathway to hope

(Continued)

In my opinion, the problem is not the lack of caring, it is the lack of focused action. I believe we need to raise the quality of public discourse from “God-ain’t-it-awful” to small- and large-scale acts that make us leap to common cause. That discourse, that conversation, begins not with answers, but with questions.

President John F. Kennedy famously said, “Some men see things as they are and ask why. I dream of things that never were and say, why not?” “Why not” starts a new conversation. It is the first step along the pathway to real hope for our communities, and the re-invention of our city.

Have a nice day.

Anderson resident Primus Mootry is a retired school teacher. His column appears Wednesdays in The Herald Bulletin.

No, the Colts would have won another Super Bowl by now if they had kept Manning.
Don't know; don't care
