Columbia is unique in its field. My family has lived here since it first began. My mom and her sister and their families were first-time residents in their communities. They took the lead in working with neighbors and community organizations to make it the inclusive community it was at that time.
I moved here with my young son in the early 1990s. At that time Columbia still maintained the multi-cultural inclusive atmosphere it had in the beginning. I hope we, the current residents, can work together to remember and keep that magical glow that is associated with Columbia alive and well.
