The last couple of weeks, I have found myself feeling incredibly grateful for the people in my life. Not just at home, but everywhere. The clerks at the grocery store. The bartender behind the counter. My coworkers, my neighbors, sales reps, postal workers, the guy who waved as he drove by, firefighters, garbage collectors, the lawyers.
Door County has been my home for more than 25 years, and in the last few days, I have been reminded why I love living here. It is because of my neighbors, our community and the collective resilience and compassion that exist here. This community always steps up when someone needs help. It is absolutely incredible.
I don’t write often. I always want to write more. The stress of what our world and our community is under has inspired me to not let another day pass without saying thank you to all of you in Door County. You have inspired me, cared for me and urged me forward, and you have done that so many times for so many people. It is an honor to be part of such an incredible community. Once again so many are stepping up in a time of need and coming together to solve the challenges put before us.
We are Door County. We will get through this. Thank you all for all that you do.
