[Minnesota Rising] May 2011 Update Celebrate: Minnesota Rising turns 2! Happy 2nd birthday to the Minnesota Rising blog! In May 2009, Minnesota Rising's original post posited, "As young Minnesotans, we can no longer wait for some appointed time to reach out and serve our communities. Today's problems will only grow increasingly complex as we age, and we have learned in our short time that change takes a long time. We can't depend on other generations to create the Minnesota we envision for our families and children. We are the ones Minnesota has been waiting for."
