Question: What do you believe is the greatest change/challenge experienced in the history of the human race?
The subject of change is both very broad and very personal. All of us are trying to change somebody or something; or more personally, trying to change ourselves. But there is reluctance to change. In San Marcos, this challenge can be seen in the contrariety opinions toward back-in parking, one-way streets, and nearly any issue before the planning and zoning commission.
Our reluctance to change can bring a smile to our family and friends.
