We Are All in This Together!
This letter is the hardest letter I have had to write. We are living in an unprecedented time. Our country, our state and our communities are calling on each of us to make decisions that will impact not only our loved ones, but every person in the world.
We are looking at each other and ourselves in a different light. We are seeing those among us become heroes: driving across the country delivering essential supplies, stocking shelves, showing up every day to provide health care at hospitals and clinics and making the decision to adhere to social distancing.
This time is challenging, but I want to also remind you of the strength of our community. We have proven we can pull together and meet challenges with perseverance and courage. We are strong.
I want to also remind you to think of your neighbor. Now, it is more important than ever to shop local, to conserve on resources and reach out through all of our technological means to remind each other we are still here and not alone.
Show Me The Ozarks Magazine will continue to provide entertaining and informative articles that celebrate the culture and lifestyle of our region. We are in this together!
Please continue to reach out to us and tell us what you want to see each month. We want to hear from you!
