Lessons in the Alewives
Welcome, summer! Yesterday we honored military members who have died in service to our country with deepest respect. When next you meet a veteran, or as you love one, know that we depend on your support. To my brother and sister veterans, I salute you. And I thank you.
This week I also have been thinking about alewives…. You heard me. Kathleen Lohmar Exel told me all about them. For the first time since 1783, alewives return to China Lake. The last time alewives made the 70-mile journey from the ocean to China Lake in central Maine, the American Revolution had just come to an end in 1783. Since then, the sea run fish, also known as river herring, have been blocked from their historic spawning grounds by a series of dams. But this past week, something remarkable happened: the fish returned. It is especially interesting in that it was a small group of people who made the impossible, possible AND it involves fish ladders. You’ll have to read about that…
Real change and real transformation always starts small. People united by an idea and driven by passion. Small groups of people, changing the world.
We, too, can manifest the remarkable.
See you in the trenches.
