“All we have to do to create the future
is to change the nature of our conversations
to go from blame to ownership,
and from bargaining to commitment,
and from problem solving to possibility.”
 —Peter Block

Studies show that there are two major determinants of our local safety. One is how many neighbors we know by name. The other is how often we are present and associated in public outside our homes. Connections among neighbors are critical.
