I do understand that Bedford residents all want the same thing: for Bedford to be the best town it possibly can be. But while there may be some good-faith disagreement over exactly what that looks like in practice, we have to keep in mind how fortunate we are.
We live in a town with good schools, access to excellent medical care, ample opportunity for recreation (including other paved and unpaved trails), and so forth.
While residents of other parts of the country are fighting for clean water, decent schools, and an end to local gun violence, we need to keep the urgency of our issues in perspective and realize how blessed we, as a community, are.
