Prior to May 2007, Greensburg, KS, was known as the home of the World’s Largest Hand-Dug Well.
A mile-and-a-half-wide F5 Tornado changed all that when it
swept through the town, doubled back and destroyed 95 percent of the town.
Rather than pack up and walk away, the town chose to rebuild and embrace the
devastating change as an opportunity to build something better.
They have succeeded in doing that, building a state-of-the-art Green City, a LEED Platinum city.
Today our culture has been hit by one cultural F5 tornado after another.
What are these cultural forces that are buffeting our society and
how can we deal with such massive changes that are creating a New Normal?
