My news feed is blowing up with tweets and Facebook posts about the North American International Auto Show (follow #NAIAS for details). It’s remarkable that at a time of social unrest both nationally and internationally, we can come together peacefully to talk about cars. I just couldn’t stop thinking about it, maybe because of the media trend, so I wrote a few thoughts down as to why #MichiganIsAuto:
Michigan is Auto because we believe. We believe in the power of innovation and technique. We believe that despite the downturn of economies, the act of wars and the hardships of weather, we will remain strong. We believe in creating products that meet customer needs, we believe our history helps us improve and we believe in working together to achieve our visions of greatness. Michigan is Auto because we use the strengths of individuals to believe in something bigger than ourselves.
So what does this all have to do with our farm? Henry Ford also wanted to make the work of small farmers easier with mass-produced tractors. So thankful for visionaries like that guy!
