What ever happened to "neighborhoods"―the kind where you knew who lived next door and weren't afraid to ask to borrow a cup of sugar? Today, we live in better houses, drive better cars, but we have lost a real sense of what community is.
Well, I am not just interested in talking about the problem. I want to do something about it. This Network DeSoto project is my way of lighting the flame of a new spin on the old-fashioned ideal of community. I am on a mission to connect with everyone in DeSoto and surrounding areas. No! I am not running for political office nor do I desire to run. I just believe that one person with a made up mind can change the world. I want to be one of those people. Won't you join me?
Each person has a gift, a talent, a skill that they can offer for the betterment of our world. I want to get to know you, find out what yours is and connect you with others who need your gift and who have something that you need. Today, I am focused on DeSoto, Texas. My hope is that my actions will start a revolution and others will duplicate what I do in other circles of influence.
Let's get to know each other. Let's improve our communities. Let's change the world.
