Brad Gillis: Let’s lead with honesty, humility and vision

This is an extremely challenging time in our community. We will remember Covid-19 for the rest of our lives, this experience will reshape the world for generations to come.

Brad Gillis.

The deadly virus Covid-19 is here, in our community; no sugar-coating the circumstances we are truly joined together in a fight for everything we love about our home. 

We are blessed to live in an area with proactive leaders like Gov. Larry Hogan and Mayor Jake Day are both making extremely difficult decisions hourly for the betterment of our state and city.

In addition, we are fortunate to have a world-class health care system, led by Peninsula Regional Health System.

Please listen to our leaders and health care professionals, wash your hands, use social distancing — and when in doubt, don’t go out. 

The game is afoot; we will continue to rise as a community. As we struggle with losing money, home-schooling our children, unemployment and general uncertainty, let’s challenge ourselves to be optimistic and future ordinated.

Let’s do everything in our power to make each day better than the one before. 

Be resilient. Practice love, kindness and support.

We have the opportunity to be a shining example during this crisis by choosing our daily actions. Let’s lead with honesty, humility and vision. 

Thank you so much for all you are. I have never been more proud. I love you. 

Brad Gillis is a principal with Gillis Gilkerson Development in Salisbury.
