I received a phone call this morning from one of my neighbors who, like me, is fed up with the prison-like atmosphere being developed by our property manager and board of our HOA. She wanted to go to a board meeting and speak up, but her husband advised her "you can't change anything so why bother."
It's this attitude - that I don't count - I can't change anything - that allows the bullies and control freaks to succeed.
Speak up. Be counted. It is the only way that change can occur.
