One of the goals of this website is to change the image of Cincinnati from the current status of "not so great" to something a whole lot better. I am not talking about public relations trickery, I am talking about a very major reduction in violent crime, drug and alcohol abuse, depressing neighborhoods, and health problems. I am talking about a big improvement in race relations, community spirit and police relations.
Effecting these things will not be an easy task, there is no simple answer. It will involve changing the way people think; one of the most difficult tasks one could undertake. It will involve some deeply entrenched ignorance in people in our own families, people in the criminal element, city hall, state and federal politics, and big business. To start, it will be one person at at time. As more join in an active roll then several can be shown the way together. Then several turns to many and many have a voice that more will listen to. Other cities will inqiure how Cincinnati has affected such a positive change and they will want to learn from us. We can be the model of positive change. It won't be a miricle, but it will be moving us in the right direction.
