And everyone, every single family contributed
I’m for sure all about more love and less hate. That is something we could sure do with a lot more of right now. It seems that everywhere I go, people’s default response to just about anything is hostility. The attitudes and behaviors I encounter are generally just so negative. I realize that staying cooped up inside the air conditioning of our homes during the pandemic didn’t help. But I really feel like it’s so much more than that. And it’s just so unnecessary and sad. Actually, that’s the feeling I get more than anything else when I think about where we are as a society. I feel sad. Yet, there are also opportunities each day to turn that around and that’s just what my little community just did for a neighbor. One of our neighbors had the heat pump die on them. These folks didn’t have a bunch of money to start with. But the pandemic caused the mom to lose her job and the dad still hasn’t gotten his full salary levels restored since the pandemic is still going. We live in a region where doing without air conditioning in the summer is simply not possible. For sure, we need HVAC cooling just to manage the levels of heat and humidity. So along with the local HVAC company, our neighborhood pitched in and got these people some new residential HVAC. And everyone, every single family contributed. That’s the sort of place that I remember living in. We might all me different but we pull together to take care of each other.
