You can't watch TV or read a newspaper today without hearing the word "community. " There's talk about the black community, the Hispanic community, the business community and the scientific community. Wherever there are people with the same interests, they're a community.
You're part of a community, too. It's our neighborhood (or town). As a resident of this community, you have some common interests with everybody else that lives there. you want it to be clean and safe with pleasant streets, good schools and friendly people - a place you can be proud of.
Well, there's something you can do about that. In fact we're going to do something about it next week with our Good Turn. But you can do more. you can avoid littering, for example, and it won't hurt you to pick up other people'
s litter either. You can be a good citizen in school and thus make your school better.
Be proud of you community. And let's all do our part to make it a place we all can be proud of.
