Picture a sunny autumn day in a bustling urban neighborhood. You step off your front porch, greet your neighbor, and stroll down the street to your community coffee shop. As you sit outside the cafe, you overhear the two senior citizens next to you discussing their mentoring program and their chess strategy. You smile as you watch a group of children in school uniforms playing in the leaves as they walk to their elementary school down the street. The florist across the alley props her door as she sets out buckets of fresh flowers for sale. Business people on cell phones pass neighbors pushing strollers to the park down the street. There are no vacant lots or abandoned storefronts. No one left out or displaced. You  and your diverse community feel a part of something alive, creative, and inspiring.  You are proud to live in Indiana.
