"I chose to do my written response on personal and community resilience. To me, resilience means pushing at something; something that you feel strongly about, until change comes about. Whether that is a social issue, or a personal goal. Standing up and and taking action is a big part of resilience. Keeping your pace while life throws curveballs is something I think everyone can work on. A community needs to be resilient to function, but resilience can change over time. My square represents the idea that resilience includes everyone working together and listening to each other. Everyone in a community may have differing ideas, but they all want the community to succeed. Listening to each other respectfully is the first step in a resilient community."
