What does it mean to be truly committed to the community? As the northern New Mexico's largest employer, Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) has remained steadfast in their investments through the Community Commitment Plan that Los Alamos National Security, LLC (LANS) – the company that manages LANL – established in 2006. Even through hard times and budget negotiations, LANS has made strategic investments in education, economic development and community giving.
Carol A. Clark, publisher of the Los Alamos Daily Post (the online news source for the community) talks with Carole Rutten, deputy director of the LANL Community Programs Office. Interviewing each other, listeners gain a better understanding of what this commitment to the northern New Mexico region really means.
Did you know that most activism is brought about by ordinary people? Rosa Parks, at the forefront of the Civil Rights Movement, was an ordinary person. Edmund Burke said it best - "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing". I would include good women as well. Burke also said that "no one could make a greater mistake than he (I add she) could make a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little."
Now, more than ever, the world needs good people to rise together to protest the injustices of gender discrimination, racial discrimination, discrimination against gays and lesbians, and other forms of discrimination.
If you have something you believe in strongly, if you have some cause that you want to support, become an activist and lend your voice to changing the world, one person and one positive action at a time.
