WOW. That’s all I can say after reading Firefly’s latest entry about Great Falls, and how our wonderful community is not – and should not be – just like Missoula, or Bozeman, etc.
But I don’t want to be Billings or Missoula. I don’t want to be like anywhere else. I want us to be Great Falls, Montana. I want us to grow in a way that will support the reasons I live here. Want to be more like Missoula? Move there.
She is absolutely right when she notes that our community is very special, and offers up some comments from other bloggers (and lurkers) to make her point…she cites plenty of evidence that we have an awful lot going for us, and that we don’t need to consider our city as “second best” to anyplace else.
