I would like to challenge every person living in Cabell County to do more than they are doing to make our county better. Let's start with solving the problem of litter and improper solid waste disposal. That is a job that each of us can do to contribute to a better community. If each of us would make a pledge to ourselves to never litter and, further, to pledge to "adopt a spot" that we notice needs some tidying-up, we would be a long way down the road to having cleaner communities. To me that would be "giving" - giving back to our community. A "taker" is someone who does anti-social things - like dropping fast food waste in the street without any thought that someone else will have to pick up their trash.
That is a simple example of what I mean by "givers" and "takers". You can carry that idea out, as it relates to "volunteering" for community service, or "never volunteering" to be of service to others. In reality, many of our citizens are so self-absorbed that they have disconnected from their community, their county, their state and their country. their self-interest is their only concern.
What can we do to get folks to "re-connect" and become a "giver" in the comunities of Cabell County?
