The three-headed hydra of apathy, envy and fear is doing just fine. Isn’t everyone?

Viruses? Joblessness? No worries! Life is one big hot tub holiday for the three-headed hydra of apathy, envy and fear.

We have heroic leaders who are working tirelessly to make things right and ensure the vital services for surviving and thriving. And then we have the three-headed hydras, in positions of power, blocking anything that would help anyone but themselves. For the hydra, it’s biggest problem is getting the temperature of the hot tub just right.

We have to support our heroes in state capitals, city halls, county commission and school board meeting rooms as they vote on policies and programs to ensure our health, safety and education. Their votes matter more than ever during what is sure to be one very long, tough transition to an as yet undefined post-pandemic economy.

A Plan Forward (or the alternative)

We have an amazing opportunity to collaborate to put in place a PLAN*. County by county, we can create towns and cities where 100% thrive. The alternative won’t be a hot tub holiday.

*The future is what we make it. Join the evolution.

Please excuse any typos as I construct an article at 3am on only one cup of Joe. These stories are mine and mine alone. I do not represent any organization here. If one of my illustrations looks like a real human or three-headed hydra, that’s total coincidence. Words and images ©Dominic Cappello but share with everyone you know. Questions?
