Staying Cecil Strong
This year has thrown a lot of us for a loop, and with Cecil County Public Schools starting back virtually this fall, our shared challenges are far from over. But, it is important to remember that, when we meet those challenges together, they become shared success stories. It’s a good time right now to lean on the lessons of yesterday. Like wisdom from a caring grandparent or an old timer who took notice of your efforts when you were a kid offering advice like, “No matter how tough you got it, there’s always someone out there who’s got it worse.”
Now is a time to be thankful for what we have. Our families. Our terrific community. Our police, fire departments and first responders. Our schools and the dedicated teachers and staff who are going to be pulling double duty administering virtual and hybrid lessons until we are on the other side of this current situation. All of it matters.
With all of the negativity out there online and on TV, it’s important to remember the good among us. It’s vital that we take time to recognize the small acts of kindness, generosity and compassion that we see everyday where we live.
We may have a way to go until things get back to normal, or bounce back. But, we will bounce back, and we will do so together.
