What hopes do you have for your community and the country in 2021?

Woah. 2020’s been a bumpy ride. Marginalized groups, the small business community, and at-risk individuals and the families of those with co-morbidities have all faced serious challenges in a society that is doing its best to stay afloat overall.

We are wiser, perhaps, than we were before being humbled by events outside our control this past year. These area residents show us that opportunity is the phoenix rising from 2020’s discarded ashes.

That we can all think more deeply and long-term about our interdependence on each other and our environment, and how we can better respect each other instead of serving only ourselves. Whether we like it or not, we’re all in it together and there’s no way around that; it’s all connected.

My always hope is that our courtesy and regard for each other rise to be commonalities.

Things I would like to see in my community and country in 2021: a return to “a sense of normalcy” (wouldn’t we all); keeping locals and families in mind when tourism expansion is debated; and of course not to be taxed to hell and back.

Patience.
