We are Building
Updated: Sep 3, 2021
Over the past couple of weeks, I observed all the people who worked together to build this incredible sandcastle here in Imperial Beach. Day after day, I would pass by on my beach walk, knowing I was one day closer to seeing the final product. When castle was finished, I asked myself, what could this sandcastle represent?
For me, the sandcastle reminded me that every part is important -- every single grain of sand-- and that the whole is so much more than just a combination of its parts. The grains come together in a precise configuration to create joy in passersby and to foster a sense of pride for those of us who call Imperial Beach our home.
We are all building something, whether consciously or not. What are you building? What is your legacy to the world? How do you interact with other people to create your contribution to the world?
