Santa Cruz has been saying these words too often lately. Yes, we have been going through a rough patch this month, but this community is better than this and we will come through it, hopefully stronger and more cohesive than ever before. Community is built upon respect and compassion for our fellows. It is grown through common interest and both a celebration of each others’ achievements as their achievements are our own, and empathy with those who are bereaved as their sadness is also our own.
As we mourn the passing of our loved community members, we also celebrate those who give us cause for joy.
A huge Happy Birthday to Bill J.
Congratulations to Elise N on a big half marathon PR.
