It's never easy to take risks, to spend hard-earned money rather than save it for a future rainy day – whenever that may come. But ask the Sisters of St. Joseph about taking risks. Back in 1949, they went beyond what was surely comfortable and made a decision to invest in the future of thousands of folks by providing a medical facility at no cost to the taxpayers. While we should all value the commitment and vision of the Sisters of St. Joseph, we can't ignore the fact that medical needs and expectations have changed. Change always brings a certain amount of risk, but staying the same brings the risk of falling behind.
As a teacher, my approach to student learning has obviously changed over the past 30 years to meet the challenges of new theory, new technology, and new techniques. I would be doing a disservice to my students if I didn't try to stay current on changes in education.
I want to feel confident and safe regarding professional, community-based health care when I need it. I want that for my husband and also for my children and grand-children who have all chosen to make Concordia their home. I want that for all citizens of this great community and the surrounding area.
Change is inevitable and necessary. But some things should never change – self-sacrifice for the greater good, a vision for a better tomorrow, and a provision of resources for those who will carry on long after we are gone.
