I think in many ways we take our beautiful community for granted. I know I did.
I have come to realize that Evanston is made up of not only friends, but heroes, too.
In the last few years, I have been in need of help. From one phone call, the ambulance crews, law enforcement officers and some of their family members were here to help me. The hospital and its personnel were efficient, courteous and put us at ease.
We don’t think of these things until the need is there. I wish to thank everyone for their help.
