Since I moved here I have been lucky and have not needed to find a new job. Normally I just delete the Cenedella EMails when I see them. This time I didn't. Maybe it was the subject line--"Who's Going to Fix this Mess?"
At any rate, he went to a conference over the weekend and ran into Arizona Senator Jon Kyle. So, Marc says:
Senator Kyl, who's going to fix this mess?You know the answer:
You are.Then the specifics from Senator Kyle:
- Get involved politically. Whatever party you're in, get active.
- Get involved through civic groups. Whether you're a CPA, or a member of the bar, or a concerned tech executive, or just a patriotic citizen from Boston (Manchester, NH), get active through your civil, professional, or industry associations.
- But most of all, Senator Kyl urged, don't wait for Washington. This country wasn't built from Washington, and it sure isn't going to be saved by Washington. It's going to be the efforts, and the toil, and the work, of the real leaders of the country - people like you who can make a difference every day by making your companies and your communities stronger and better.
I loved the line:  "This country wasn't built from Washington, and it sure isn't going to be saved by Washington."  Washington will play a key role, but in the end it will be all of us who will make the difference.  It will be our collective courage and fortitude that will bring this crisis to an end.

PS: For those of you who subscribe to the formula known as the Newspaper Party Naming Convention (NPNC) with regard to political party association of those mentioned in news stories, no, Senator Kyle is not a Democrat.
