Celebrations accompanying the beginning of 2021 may have looked different this year, but the anticipation of a new and better year certainly accompanied all the ways we found to celebrate.
Do we see light at the end of a tunnel? I certainly believe so.
Will it require dedication and determination from each one of us? Absolutely.
Perhaps the time for real celebration will need to be delayed until later this year but there is no denying that the time will come.
Our community is resilient.
If there are good things to reflect upon during this past year, most of all, it is our spirit of togetherness, of community.
It was witnessed in so many ways, but perhaps most of all in celebrating the sacrifices and courage of healthcare workers and first responders.
I have no doubt that we have the talent and resources to move every part of our community forward for the benefit of all who live here.
