Next year's census will show less than one in four households in our country will be inhabited by a married couple with children.

It will likely also show that in the two most populous states in America, California and Texas, and in the ten most populous cities, white, non-Hispanic Americans will be a minority of the population.  The same will be the case in Montgomery County, Alabama.

Our nation and our local region are more diverse in all aspects of life than ever before and we need to embrace the changes in our workplaces and our neighborhoods.

Certainly our region's history as the cradle of the confederacy and the birthplace of the modern civil rights movement should give us perspective and guidance to be leaders in change.

Yet we continue to let racial tension color many issues.

Some say fostering the tensions is strategic.

Others say the tensions are history and most of us have moved past it.

We need to and get on with the business of solving problems together, building and fostering trust and respect, and realizing our quality of life will be better for it.
