“The Perspective”, SILENCE June 2021 and July 2021

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”*
– The Great Poet and Philanthropist Maya Angelou

As we continue the summer months and at best the early part of an already active hurricane season, lets remember the hearts of those who are less fortunate. In their heart, spirit, and soul, whether they are Family, Friends, Neighbors, Strangers alike, all of us are in need of compassion in times of trials.

We pay tribute to our First Responders (Fire and Rescue, Law Enforcement, Emergency Medical Services (EMS), and Military Personnel), as well our Educators, Public and Civil Workers, Environmental (Sanitation Workers), the Medical Community, Social Workers, Employees distributing of goods, services, products, and mail (seas, rails, roads, air), Municipal, Judicial, and Leaders (political, corporate, religious, and community), the United States of America, and the world.

May you continue to be safe. Until next time on “The Perspective”, we will explore “Loyalty”.
