A Note from Johnny

The Importance of Community in Today’s World

As you all know this has been some very trying times. The world seems to have been flipped upside down onto our heads. Things that were once considered rocks in our lives have now become uncertain and that has at times been uneasy. I would like to however take this time to look at the other side of things. In this time of uncertainty and confusion I have witnessed some amazing things. At a time when people are social distancing at least 6 feet apart I have seen how we are all in fact coming closer together through our weekly Scout meeting and staying closer with the loved ones in our homes and in touch with family members out of our homes as well. When people are becoming worried for the health of themselves and their friends and family members, I have witnessed everyone supporting one another and lending an open “metaphorical” hand. Remember in these times to look at the gifts and blessings in your own life and to remember how much the people in your lives mean to you. When things do return to normal be sure to take the positive outcomes from this experience with you.
