We know that the COVID-19 pandemic has made life difficult for people across the globe. But in spite of all this difficulty and uncertainty, we’ve also seen unprecedented bravery over the past several weeks. The efforts of the firefighters, police officers, doctors, nurses, and other first responders in our community has been nothing short of heroic.
