"Only in the darkness can you see the stars." —Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Today symbolizes many important things to so many people. It's a powerful reminder to have something to stand for beyond one's self, one's community, and one's own interests; something to fight for, to protect, and to preserve.
For us, it's a challenge to preserve the environment within which we exist and upon whom we depend. To treat our customers with respect, care, and unconditionality. To invest in our employees as much as possible. To operate our grounds in an inclusive and transparent way.
Days like today and people like Dr. King reminded us, and hopefully, others, that we live in a more equitable world made possible by the fights and struggles of those before us. That struggles and needs still exist. And that every person, business, and community has immense potential to chip away at the struggles of today.
