Glad you’re OK

Attention: Buck Buchanan and all others who regularly sit in our council chambers, a heart attack was likely a startling moment, to say the least for you and yours, Coun. Buchanan. I am sincerely glad that you are OK and back on your feet so quickly.

Each of us can be busy, scared and brave at moments in time. Some people’s moments in time are longer or shorter than another’s. The key is to stop for as long a moment as you can afford to say “thanks for thinking about me!” And then as long a moment to say “you’re welcome.”

Remember, your issue is always right if you truly believe in that for which you stand. In this case your issue was a daughter.

Thanks from me to the entire list of our city’s emergency support and transport teams. Now get back to work.
