Do you remember seeing the original Wizard of Oz movie, where it begins in black and white and then switches into color? That's how I see local communities sometimes - but in reverse. The thriving, vibrant palette of shades created by diversity and uniqueness could, one day, friends - perhaps a day not too far off - fade to just shadows of black and white. Your local businesses aren't "cute" or "quaint" or "adorable". They are what once upon a time, made a place into a community.
