"I feel a very unusual sensation - if it is not indigestion, I think it must be gratitude." - Benjamin Disraeli
The lights are on, the snow is melting and services are restored — we weathered (the worst) of the storm. Not one of us did it alone. We had National Grid, Red Cross, town employees, volunteers and most importantly, our friends, neighbors and the community. It is our neighbors who picked up the shovels, pushed our cars out of snow, watched our children or maybe just listened.
It is those individuals in our lives that get us through the storms of life, but everyday acts of kindness seldom make the headlines. Until today.
If someone made this storm easier for you tell them thank you here, in the comment section below. Because as Oscar Wilde said, "The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention."
Note: this is for positive comments only. If you would like to provide constructive feedback about the town's clean-up effort, you can do so here.
