Voice of the Community

“It is through the arts that we are able to tell our stories, that we are able to give voice to the things that we hold dear in our hearts, our memories of people and place, our pains and our pleasures, our fears and our hopes for the future. By appealing to deeply held values, the arts can be a catalyst for social change, working to build caring and capable communities.”

Now re-read and substitute “the arts” for “social media”. I’m thinking of the possiblities.

Have a wonderful Christmas and holiday season. Dream big dreams for 2009.
