Think Big - Revitalize our Parks
What if we had a chance to let our new president know what is important to us. How do we want to change the direction of the country?
Change.org is doing just that. It allows anyone (who registers, of course) to put forth ideas. The most popular idea will be sent to the Obama team. Anyone can vote on it.
One of the proposals that caught my eye is from Anne Whisnant, a historian and author of Super-scenic Motorway: a Blue Ridge Parkway History. Anne proposes to revitalize our national parks by employing young people in a new type of CCC (Civilian Conservation Corp.).
I don't know why they have to be young and they certainly don't have to be male, but other than that, I think it is a great idea.
Look at her idea and if you agree, vote for it.
