Yesterday, I sent an e-mail to all of our staff entitled “You Matter.” I ended that note with just this:

“You matter. Black lives matter. To me. To us. To JFGH.”

After having been with JFGH for a year, now, I know that our community strengthens in the face of adversity, that we look after one another, and that we stand tall in the face of threats to justice. Doing nothing, sitting back, abdicating responsibility is not our way. We must not wither.
