In these times of uncertainty, I am inspired by the many displays of solidarity and kindness I have seen across our community and the country.


I am profoundly grateful for the health care providers, first responders, service industry professionals, government employees and so many other remarkable people who are working day and night to keep things running smoothly during this unprecedented episode in our lives.
