This year, Wrightsville Beach will usher in the implementation of North Carolina's first smoke-free beach. Very BIG deal. Successful implementation means there will be fewer littered cigarette butts on Wrightsville Beach! I'm so excited! I look forward to seeing a change and helping raise awareness about the new ordinance. ...and as I reflect back, I can't stop smiling because I was part of something big. I helped create change because I believed... because I had hope. Because I read the words "You are the difference" and I believed it.
So let me remind you (as I do every new year)
You are the difference.
Pass it on. Everything we do matters.
