Does your community need you?

What happens to charity and giving when you expect the government to take care of the needy?

What happens when you will not stoop to pick up trash in the park because “that is the city’s job?”

What happens when the street in front of your home is dirty, but you choose to wait for the city to clean your street?

What happens when you choose to let others make decisions that affect your child’s education?

Multiply your choices not to become involved, because you are waiting for others to resolve what you see as the responsibility of tax-supported government agencies.

Now explain to others in your community why they need you. Also explain why you should not pay more taxes than those who care and contribute to your community.

The folks we need are the ones who not only give of themselves freely, but educate others how to achieve a feeling of self-worth through individual responsibility to their community.

What happens, kiddo, is that we don’t need you, no matter how much you pay in taxes.
