The importance of community has never been more evident than during the COVID-19 pandemic. In a time of uncertainty and fear, we turn toward our community for support and connection. Neighbors across the country have come up with creative ways to stay connected while physical distancing. Scavenger hunts, Zoom calls, food delivery, cheering front line workers from our windows, and hundreds of other brilliant ideas are popping up all around us.
This crisis highlights something we have known for a long time: where we live matters. The people, resources, networks, and opportunities within our community make a big difference in our lives. In Lower Price Hill, neighbors are working to deliver food, make face masks, plant in the community garden, and offer homework help. These efforts cannot solve the pandemic, but they help to keep us safe and supported during this difficult time.
I hope that we all come away from this crisis healthy and safe. I hope that we remember to keep believing and investing in each other. The heroes that you see on the frontlines in your community today are not just there in a crisis. They have always been there working to generate ideas, create opportunities, tackle problems, and a build stronger community.
Let us keep celebrating and supporting the everyday heroes in our community.
