To the Editor: Be thankful for what you have in BG

The recent school shooting tragedy in Connecticut reminds us that life is fragile. We may sometimes forget how lucky we are to have family and friends sharing our ups and downs, and we may take for granted the opportunities for personal growth and excellence that come our way. But one lesson of that tragedy and the holiday season is to be thankful for what we have. This year we can be very thankful for the vibrancy of our great city. I strongly believe that 2013 is going to be a great year to live, work, and play in Bowling Green, and that is because all of us working together will build on our successes.
This year, volunteers worked very hard to clean up our waterways, raise money for charity, and hold wonderful festivals, parades, and other celebrations. Our public servants crafted and passed a balanced budget, ensured a high commendation of our public transit system by ODOT, and educated students, townspeople, and national and international politicians about the importance of civility, compromise, and cooperation in local government.
2012 was a testament to the high value we place on community investment, civic engagement, and public service here in BG. May we continue to work together to better the welfare of all our citizens in 2013.
Daniel Gordon
BG City Council
