Not sure if you’ve heard the term that’s so Cowlitz yet, but it’s getting tossed around and associated with a myriad of negative acts and unfavorable behavior.
Someone sees something deplorable and states that’s so Cowlitz. We’ve heard it said with eye rolls, with a sigh, and sometimes with disgust. The term, as it’s currently used, seems to portray that there’s nothing we can do, this is just how it is, and that nothing is going to change… some things do need to change and we as a community are working and will continue to work on that, but the list of great things to do, see, and to be a part of is growing!
So we would like to continue the use of the term that’s so Cowlitz but we’ve got a way better use for it…

So here’s a simple suggestion:
Work hard to make sure that each day is better than the day before and then imagine what our days could be like as we get older. Now think about if we worked together a little bit each day to make our community better, what it can be like…that’s so Cowlitz
