TO BE YUKON STRONG
I can only hope that everyone will have the common sense to be kind in the months to come. This will be a tough test for a strong and caring community. Please remember foremost the Elders, the Seniors, the Homeless, and the hungry. To be YUKON STRONG, you must have a strong sense of awareness when you offer anyone care, so that you don't accidentally place anyone in harms way.
To be YUKON STRONG, you must acknowledge and thank all that stand in harms way, notably the grocery clerks, daycare workers, home-care personnel, and the many essential employees that will assist keeping our territory upright during this unimaginable down-turn. It is to recognize the brave businesses who quickly adjusted their routines to make their contributions or sacrifices. Its to respect the spiritual leaders' well intentions to offer hope to the vulnerable and blind.
To be YUKON STRONG you are compelled to assist our ailing community in anyway possible, with your skills, resources and imagination. You are each gifted, everyone of you, find that gift may it be laughter, music, or art. May it be science, health or communications. Identify it, and share it with everyone.
To be YUKON STRONG, be you.
