2006 needs to be the year of working together. We have issues that can only be solved with a collective will and mission. Our goal for 2006 must be to create possibilities together. The evidence is overwhelming that when regions come together, organizations come together, or neighborhoods come together, then big things happen—not just one time but over and over. If you serve in an elected office—reach out. If you run a nonprofit organization—find a way to work with another organization. And if you are concerned about something or have an idea for change—find some people to talk with about it. Many of the challenges we face could be solved if we could work together. As Wendell Berry once said, "One's real duty to the future is to do as you should do now. Make the best choices, do the best work, fulfill your obligations in the best way you can."
