Remembering Katrina

This past week was the one year anniversary of the tragic events that occurred last year during and after Hurricane Katrina. This week also marks the one year anniversary of my blog, partly inspired by the destruction and despair that I witnessed as a result of the storm. The impact of those images compelled me to begin thinking of ways that I could help with the rebuilding efforts. I decided to use this blog as a platform for ideas and potential solutions. Here are a few of my first articles, representing my initial foray into the blogosphere…

My goal over this past year has been to be part of the solution for improving our communities, not just someone who complains about the problems. There are no easy answers for strengthening families, eradicating poverty, decreasing homelessness, eliminating teen pregnancy, increasing high school graduation rates, etc. Nevertheless, I will continue to brainstorm and develop solutions that can have a real impact and achieve significant results. There is still much work to be done and as the famous quote states, “I have not yet begun to fight!”

We all have something significant that we can contribute to improving our communities. To make it happen we just need to come together and work toward common goals more intentionally. Let’s be part of the solution together.

I look forward to continuing to encourage you to reach further, perform better, try harder, think broader, and dream bigger!

Empowering You for Success,
Paul Wilson
