Thankful for Great Neighbors

Dear Editor:

Thanksgiving provides an excellent time to reflect on all the blessings in my life — not the least of which is being part of a great community of people; specifically, my neighborhood. I am thrilled to be associated with such an amazing, dedicated, and determined group of people that go the extra mile to help out a neighbor in need. Every day, I get the opportunity to witness firsthand the sacrificial devotion of each member of my community. I see the thoughtfulness displayed by the members of my community; and, that thoughtfulness is crucial during these challenging times.

COVID-19 has impacted each of our lives — from the disruption of our daily routines to the loss of loved ones. Yet, in the midst of this tragedy, members of my community reach out to their neighbors and provide the aid and comfort that is so urgently needed. Whether they volunteer to help those at greater risk of infection, bring meals to neighbors devastated by the loss of a loved one, or call to check on a neighbor they haven’t seen in a while, each member of my community represents a shining beacon of hope during this dark time. And I am extremely thankful for that!
