Just a brief note to our friends north of the USA. Happy Canada Day !!! I join in the celebration of your country and invite you to join with the USA in the celebration of our country this coming Juy 4. Despite being a different kind of celebration considering the pandemic, considering excessive heat warnings and fire dangers, considering hometown fireworks bans and beach closures, and considering social distancing and face masks, we must remember to appreciate everything we DO have, and we will still celebrate everything that makes us who we are. We will be grateful for our freedoms, grateful for essential workers that have kept our worlds spinning, grateful for those volunteers taking care of their less fortunate neighbors, grateful for the leaders who have stepped up to the need, and grateful to draw another breath each day.
