Our Big Island Community Coalition -- whose goal is "to make Big Island electricity rates the lowest in the state by emphasizing the use of local resources" -- seems to be really making people think in a new way. It's the right goal at the right time.
Someone who has been reading about our efforts said they make him think of these words of Gandhi's, which are pretty profound. If these words were a roadmap, we'd be at the "thoughts/words" intersection, and coming up on "actions."
Your words become your actions
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny.
- Mahatma Gandhi
This is a goal we are setting, and which we plan to meet, solely because it's the right thing to do. The Big Island Community Coalition doesn't have a budget, and in fact, we don't need a budget. This is not about slick P.R. This isn't P.R. at all. Not having a budget means we are just getting out there and talking to real people.
