Fear vs. Bravery

Fear vs. Bravery

-Sherri Rush

The bad guys want us to be afraid. They want us to close up shop, hide, and stop our normal routines. But that’s not how we roll in the USA. We live in the land of the free and the home of the brave. We chug along…sometimes slow, sometimes fast. We take care of our own, and as long as we believe and live this, we will overcome.

What does “taking care of our own” mean in Grant County today? We do a pretty good job of providing care and services for the disabled and otherwise handicapped, thanks to Carey Services, LifeStream Services, and other great, local organizations…trust me, I know from first-hand experience. Many low-income people receive free food and clothes from the multiple food pantries and thrift stores across the county. Some of our low-income people know about Head Start for their preschoolers. But what about the sector of our population that just doesn’t know about the services available for them to hopefully get a leg up on their situation? Do they know there are resources that can help them break the vicious cycle of poverty?
