July 2014:  Over dependency on automobiles leads to several tragic conseuences within ourselves and within our community.  An abundance of crashes, pollution and social isolation are high on the list.  MIST is all about working with people to meet and exceed the challenge to foster health and love in our transportation system and cities.  Walking, Cycling and transit are three examples of how this is done.  People getting exercise, breathing fesh air and having chance encounter with fellow citizens are important building blocks for sustainable living, democracy and meaningful relationships.  Streets have been neglected, or given over to large machines, for a 100 years.  There is no reason we cannot regain a strong human element, with people working hard, smart and together.
