Sometimes a certain darkness is needed to see the stars.
For months, we have all grappled with unprecedented circumstances. While it has not been an easy year, in between moments of pain and uncertainty, we also witnessed the brighter moments of humanity.
Local business owners who, in times of trouble, turned to us to ask, “how can we help?” Neighbors who delivered meals and collected personal protection equipment for our frontline staff. Children who wrote letters to their heroes and made us smile. Everyone in our community who continues to show compassion by staying home, wearing masks and keeping each other safe. Our staff and physicians who shared their love, sadness and strength with us and who continue to protect and care for our community.
The brightest of stars in a most difficult year.
What these moments have shown us is that together we can make 2020 a brighter year. And that when we invest in what matters most – the health and well-being of ourselves, our families and each other – we illuminate a path to a brighter tomorrow.
