A Message from Scotty…

I’m grateful that you took the time to visit my site. The world outside sure feels like a scary place right now. For many of us our computers are a means of connection to the ones we love, and maybe they give us a momentary and much-needed escape from reality. I’m glad you’re here…and I’m glad you’re here.

Like a large number of people, I don’t think I ever expected to see a pandemic like COVID-19 sweep the world in my lifetime. I think a lot of us fall victim to a sense of comfort. Or maybe it’s denial. We just don’t think anything this bad can happen to us or to the place we call home. We think it can only happen to someone else. Sad to say, there are too many of us that only care when it shows up on the doorstep.

Now, it’s here. For all of us.

There has never been a time in my life in which unity was so important. For the past four years in America we have suffered an ever-increasing division. We are now confronted with an enemy that cannot be conquered by a divided country. Our very survival may depend upon our willingness and ability to band together.

I do not ask you to abandon your principles or the passionate defense of what you hold important. I only ask that we all embrace the love and compassion for others that is so needed at this time.

Take care, and stay safe.
