THE POWER OF MIDDLE TENNESSEE
Whether you arrived here decades ago or just yesterday, you stayed in Middle Tennessee because there is something unique here that unites us, and has made this the vibrant, welcoming, and growing community it is today.
We are a place with a generous spirit and an open door.
In our best moments, we embrace openness, honesty, and a deep, collective desire and active commitment to strengthen the community we share.
And we are powerful beyond measure when we think and act together; No matter what we believe, where we come from, or what our differences might be.
TODAY, WE MUST BE CATALYSTS FOR UNITY:
We resolve that if fate leads someone to Middle Tennessee, we will embrace them as our own.
We resolve that if someone speaks ill of our neighbors, we will remind them that is not our way. We resolve to challenge the ill-informed or hateful speech before it becomes reality.
We resolve that where there is conflict, we will settle it peacefully.
No matter what the rest of the world may say or do, let us remember one thing:
WE ARE MIDDLE TENNESSEE.
PLEASE JOIN US.
BE PART OF THE SOLUTION.
