Self Reliance

This story brought a smile to my face.  It’s good to see that people haven’t forgotten that government isn’t always needed to solve problems that affect a local community.  Sometimes a better solution can be local people banding together to resolve a problem more quickly and efficiently than might otherwise occur.

Our country was built with just this sort of can-do attitude, and its refreshing to see that that attitude is alive and well.  Yes, government has a role to play in tackling those problems that no one else can or will touch, but if more people take it upon themselves to solve problems that can be solved, we’ll slowly see fewer calls for government intervention in fewer areas.
