Kingston could be ‘the’ place to live

An aerial view of the Puget Sound provides an important understanding that the east side is developed to its max.

Knowing a little about what’s up on Bainbridge Island instructs that “the 2 percent” will soon own all properties and relish in its exclusivity. Accepting the culture of Bremerton presents a clear choice of lifestyle and commitment.

All of this will lead to Kingston’s possible future, or a vision thereof.

Someday these awful wars will end and the USA will need to convert its wartime economy into one that only maintains a solid defensive military posture that supports a normal-sized military. So, Kingston might do well to dream ahead.

What surely will come about is a more diverse economy that offers more transportable information/consulting/coordinating types of employment that will allow families to have more flexibility as to where they can live and raise a family in a more peaceful world. With the new high school — and parents, educators and coaches dedicated to education — as well as  arts, sports and a fair dose of international educational opportunities, Kingston can be the first in line to attract middle- and high-middle-income homebuyers who want out of all the constrictions, materialism and conflicts existing in the areas noted above. These future families may want into what Kingston — Puget Sound’s “Port of Peace” — has to offer to these potential future residents. Kingston is a very special town.

I hail from the region in Massachusetts where middle-school students were supported in their quest for a better world. (Google “pagesforpeace.org” and check out what the students, teachers and parents in that community did.) Somewhere around Puget Sound, a similar township will think ahead, plan for a more peaceful community, and open its arms to peace seeking people. Kingston might be it!

Peace, love and understanding …
