is this what YOU had in mind for the above?

Here are some of what helps 'frame' our actions and language in our community preparedness group:
- Be Part of the Solutions, not the problems.

- Community, Caring, Common Sense

- We are better together.

- By sharing, we ALL do better at preparing.

- Better to be prepared with no emergency, than to have an emergency without being prepared.

I'm not clear on the meaning of your question, "is this what YOU had in mind for the above?".

However, I believe this is a subtopic under Promotion, Advertising & Publicity.

Here are some of the other ones we've identified so far:

* Y2K is bringing us together.

* Were best prepared when everyones aware.

* Y2K may be the biggest challenge weve ever faced together in our lifetimes.

* There is no one truth about Y2K, no single right perspective. * What will happen as a result of Y2K is everyones responsibility  individually and collectively.

* No one can be certain about the reliability or stability of any of our critical systems, and we need to be prepared with practical, flexible contingency plans. This is simply reasonable and prudent.

* We dont need to have all the information in order to be in action. Theres enough at stake here that we must do something, like getting together with my neighbors.

* If Y2K triggers the collapse of some of our infrastructures, it could pave the way for many of the key social transformation movements of the last twenty years to leap forward. Our individual and collective sense of purpose could mobilize everything from environmental consciousness, alternative energy and organic farming, to social investment, alternative currency, complementary medicine and co-ops of all kinds. Previously uninvolved members of the public could work their talents and skills into a new system that serves the real life needs of all types of people. [Davidson, McLaughlin, LaPorte]

We need more!
