So Local Pasco Podcast, Thursday, January 7th, 2016…Inspire Foundation Edition

I am so lucky.  Every day, I get to seek out and talk to people who are concerned, and are working to make our community better.  It has changed my attitude.  I recommend at least PART of what I do, to each of you: Seek out the better news, and the positive people.  You know, I live on the internet.  I see negative stuff, everyday, and sometimes it does get me down.  I started doing this, in part, to combat the deluge of dark news.  Someone will post in a group, “Hey!  I am moving to Pasco…What is there to see and do?”  They then get hammered with twenty to fifty posts of folks just UNLOADING about how bad things are, here.

Listen:  If you have food on your table, a job, and a roof over your head, you have it better than about 75% of the population of the WORLD.  It’s not that bad.  One of the ways you can fight the feeling that it IS that bad, is to get out there and make a difference.

Today we interview a person making a direct difference…Jason Rhodes from the Inspire Foundation is here to tell us a little about their work, a setback they suffered, and what they need.  We’ll listen, and then we’ll dig around in the closet for those musical instruments, right?  Right.
