Be a Positive Force

I gave a speech to the Newark-Heath Rotary Club this morning under the theme "Be a Positive Force."

I filled the speech with a mix of positive happenings in the community.  The message: Licking County and every community in our country needs to get ourselves out of the doldroms of this down economy and community leaders have the power to improve our economy by being a positive force.

Two quotes I used that I believe were fitting:

Power was defined by Professor Al Gini as, "To do, to be able, to change, to influence or effect."

And  Elizabeth Dole, former cabinet secretary to two presidents and former U.S. Senator, said, "We have learned power is a positive force if it is used for positive purposes."
