This is my buddy Scott.
I've had a lot of opportunities to be proud of him over the years, particularly in regard to his nursing career and all of the time, effort and energy he puts back into his community as a medical professional. He's one of the smartest and most dedicated people I know, in addition to being one of the more conscientious.
He's currently working at the University of Virginia and has a healthy list of titles tacked on to his name after years of advancing his education and experience: MSN, RN, ACCNS-AG, Advanced Practice Nurse, Clinical Nurse Specialist - I'm often in awe of his depth and breadth of knowledge.
As things have progressed with the pandemic, my pride in him and my thankfulness for the profession he has dedicated his life to have grown beyond my capacity to properly capture them in words.
So this is a thank you to Scott, and to every medical professional confronting this global threat. I have many friends in the field, and I'm thankful for them every day, never more so than now.
The pic above is also notable, because normally Scott looks like this:
We're all in this together.
We're seeing more and more medical professionals taking up the razor as the need for a respirator seal becomes necessary. And while we're sad to see the beards go, we salute you one and all.
We also want you to know we'll be here when this is all over. Hit us up when you're growing your beard back, we'd love to take care of you.
In the meantime, our team has been busy trying to help however we can. Our owner, his family and several of our crew have been contributing our stock of PPE and disinfectant wherever it's needed, and have been offering supplies and building masks for the COVID Mask Crafters group on Facebook. The group has shown some explosive growth, and just launched their own website today: covidmaskcrafters.org
It's been humbling and hopeful to see this work being done, and we hope wherever you are and whatever your conditions may be, you're also seeing some of the brighter sparks of humanity at its best, as we all come together to do what we can.
Stay clean, stay healthy, stay safe!
It's been difficult to know how to manage our business during these extremely challenging times. So we're hoping to share some positivity like the mentions above with you when we can.
We also want to recognize that there is a lot of comfort to be taken in routine. Hell, sometimes my morning shower is the best part of my day.
