It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly, who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without err and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory or defeat.” - Theodore Roosevelt
Words cannot adequately express my gratitude for all that you are doing to protect our residents and fellow staff during the uncertain times of this COVID-19 crisis.
I am so impressed, grateful and proud of the work that has been done to prepare for this emergency, including the sweeping precautions that have been instituted so rapidly. I am also proud of the daily effort to keep a sense of calm and normalcy in our care centers. This crisis has made it abundantly clear how each job in the care center is interrelated and essential to our mission.
I am praying each day for you and your families to stay healthy and happy through this trying time. I pray too that God helps us to always work with purpose and calms our fears and anxieties. I am overjoyed to see the word “Hero” used to describe you and the heroic work you do each day, pandemic or not. You ALL are certainly the unseen and unspoken heroes in the world!
I am in are of the selfless dedication of staff and focus on the company’s mission of Enriching the Lives of the Residents We Serve. Thank you for the sacrifice of putting yourself in harm’s way for others. We may have a long road ahead of us but the best method of travel is to do it together. We are indeed all in this together.
