For any other disaster, I would like to think our community would work feverishly, arm in arm, for a successful outcome.
But apparently not this COVID-19 pandemic disaster.
Our community medical team will always take the high-road of compassion, science and blamelessness.
The only blame, really, belongs to the sources of incredible, lethal disinformation and vitriol.
It is 20 years since 9/11 and a unified country. Please, please bury the hatchet and once again let us rise up together, unite and help solve this current community disaster.
The longer the current acrimony continues, the longer people, families, schools and businesses will suffer.
We are all better than that.
