It's About Life, It's About Respect

As we (new members) of Walk Bike Berks embark on this new journey together let us not forget what we espouse in our Vision, above all, that we seek "quality of life". The end result of our purpose is not as much about better roads, eduction, and intermodal transportation as it is about the respect of life. While the end result of what we hope to achieve will result in tangible goals the means to achieving them is about the intangible and being respectful to each other and those we meet. After all. . . if respect for life had truly been considered in all it's meaning we wouldn't need to organize.
So I set this challenge to us all. As we go about our fund raising, setting programs and networking with organizations and local governments let's be a "respector of life". It's our means and it's our goal for Berks County.

  1. Yes, thank you Jeremy. Well written. Last night at the Exeter Township meeting, I felt very much that same sentiment. As the community seems very divided into "us" "them" sides of the school site issues, everyone in the packed meeting room stood and in a clear, unified voice said 'The Pledge of Allegiance.' It was a beautiful moment. So, I too invite us all not to loose focus of the most important components of our unifying. In the end, we are all in this together for the betterment of our quality of life.
