How nice to see the life returning to a small town

-A A +A

Last month, I saw life again in Harriman.
I grew up there, went to school, courted boyfriends and then saw life leave the town I loved.
Last month, for the first time in a long time, I saw life again.
I attended the open house of the new TV station, Channel 15.
I am so grateful to those who have worked so hard and who have the vision of seeing life return to Harriman.
Mayor Chris Mason, Gary Baker, Muse Watson, Bill Landry — these people are investing untold time and energy into making this seemingly impossible dream come true.
It can happen.
It is happening.
We must support this effort.
There are limitless possibilites for new life in this endeavor.
I see the entire town being a draw for tourists, for activities of the arts to be displayed, for family entertainment, for the teaching of life skills, for education and enlightenment.
How special and how privileged I feel to be a part of seeing this happen.
To all who have dreamed this dream and worked to achieve this reality, I salute you, and I thank you.
