Hi, my name is Derick... but some people call me Gary. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

During this trying time in our world, we have the opportunity to show our ability to come together while staying apart, to show kindness and love to our neighbors and others in our community. It is a time to be informed rather than afraid. It is a time for empathy, as our actions have an impact beyond just ourselves.

If you feel like you’re losing everything, remember that trees lose their leaves every year and they still stand tall and wait for better days to come.
