I’m a big fan of what Donna Sink of People For Urban Progress says at the 2:40 mark, “You hear a lot of talk about being a world-class city and trying to compete with other cities. But I feel like there’s a real groundswell here of people trying to be what Indianapolis can be.” Sink continues, “I think it’s going to become a world class city through that. Not through trying to be Chicago, New York, or Paris.”
This just proves that if you embrace your city and choose to make it awesome, it will be awesome.
Jim Walker of Big Car makes that point when he says at the beginning of the video, “People can choose to be here, and choose to do something good with what’s here. [They can] work with who they have here, versus thinking they need to go away and do something else.”
