Tuesday May 19 7:30amWe have trouble putting out today's fires–
let alone planning for tomorrow's.

Our open spaces are shrinking–
as fast as our attention spans.

We're hoping to leave a healthy place for our kids–
one they'll be able to afford.

No one said sustaining this region would be easy–
and it isn't.

But our love for this place makes anything possible–

it's time.
