Oregonians stand strong throughout tough year
It's been a tough year, first with the COVID virus, and now with widespread fires. We've suffered losses of both our loved ones and precious possessions, including our homes. We've seen a small amount of people at their worst, but a great number of our people at their best — giving, caring, sharing.
My friend took this picture, and it made me think of all of us: tattered, a bit worn-out, but still standing strong. I'm proud of our communities and proud to be one of you in this place we call "home." Stay strong and continue to look out for each other.
