I hope you are all well and finding creative ways to calm the stressors of COVID-19.
As the days turn into weeks and weeks into months, the realities of our human fragilities and susceptibility to this deadly coronavirus, for me, is sobering and humbling.
There are heroes among us – those at the front lines – nurses, doctors, hospital workers, support personnel, EMT crews and other first responders – police, firefighters and all those working without adequate personal protection and without critical medical supplies. And home health aides, grocery clerks, cashiers, gas station attendants and others who continue to work to serve our needs – and all those among us who are doing what is needed to be done despite the hardship of personal freedom restrictions.
Please join me in a community-wide celebration of gratitude. I will be on my porch every evening at 7PM to express my profound gratitude – clapping, banging pots, blowing a whistle, dancing, or singing.
I hope you will create some noise with me all throughout town to demonstrate our gratitude and appreciation for one another. Our small act of thanks just might be the catalyst to brighten someone’s day.
With kindest regards,
