Our RVA community is blooming beautifully!  The transformation is palpable.  What’s exciting to me is that so many more people are taking part in this transformation than are usually a part of moving Richmond forward.  For the folks who have been pushing for years, we are grateful.  For those new to the effort, we welcome with open arms.  By celebrating the novelty of this merging of old and new we implicitly recognize and start to heal the social tears that kept some separate from this effort in the past.  This new collective of old and new will make this next chapter of our community the best one so far. – Brian Cannon
