The photograph shows Wayne Strnad raising money with the Chicago Fire Department a few days after the 9-1-1 tragedy. That day more than $7,000.00 was donated by the community to help the victims.
Getting Involved with Your Community
It is a rather unfortunate thing that these days people simply do not know very much about the community in which they life. It is very common for people not to know anything about their neighbors other than that's the person that drives a certain car that they see periodically parked in front of their house. Not only that, people who live in urban areas do not know about the crime that's going on in their area, other than the "tags" that are placed on garage doors or the side of buildings - by alleged gangbangers.
For most people it's a rather simple thing to stay cloistered in their abode and block out the outside world. However, there are many advantages to getting to know your neighbors, least of which is watching out for each other.
Wayne Strnad knows a multitude of communities because he has fortunately run for public office and has circulated his petition pretty much by himself. He has knocked on thousand of doors and talked with people about the problems they face in their own community and has tried to help in any way he can to solve their problems. Of course, not every problem can be solved by him or even those in political office right now. Problems such as Medicare, employment, alternative health care, etc. These problems are global problems that should be addressed by the Federal government and those who seek the position in the House of Representative or the Senate aka Congress.
