Giving back

It’s probably been twenty years since I first heard the phrase, “give back to the community.” Over and over and over again we hear people say it or read a company press release which says that ABC Corporation “wants to give back to the community”.
All of these people and companies giving back and the communities which are the targets of all of this giving back just keep getting worse and more violent. Maybe if everyone just stopped going for that warm and fuzzy feeling and started to look at what works to make things better we would actually have improved communities and a healthier nation. But that wouldn’t focus on the give back giver and that’s what it’s all about isn’t it?
