I believe that this is a practical world and that I can count only on what I earn. Therefore, I believe in work, hard work… The Living Democracy experience requires a lot from participants – time, energy, thought, patience, creativity, commitment, and definitely hard work.

Summer in Elba Ends with Gratitude
Summer in Elba Ends with Gratitude

Last Sunday marked my final day in Elba with the exception of the Surf’s Up pool party at Hawkins-Williams Park this week. My summer here in Elba has been one to remember—to say the least. I never expected to become so involved with the people of this city that I’d actually become family.  I got a good bit done within three short months, but I could not have scratched the surface if it were not for the support and shared vision of the beautiful citizens of Elba.
