This is Our Moment!
Leaders emerge in the heat of the moment.
That statement may not sound overly profound, but I’ve never found it to be more true than this week.
My boss began making critical decisions from the moment we realized the worst was inevitable. That’s leadership.
Three Cross Point guys found a way through waste deep rushing water to rescue a widow who was neck deep in water in her home. They literally carried her several blocks through that water to safety. That’s leadership.
My husband and the rest of MNPD SWAT team worked a straight 36 hours and then have been working 12 hour shifts indefinitely to protect our city. That’s leadership.
The Cross Point staff have given up their weekend to lead volunteer teams in disaster relief. That’s leadership.
Hundreds of volunteers have gone into neighborhoods and helped families who were paralyzed by shock begin to make sense of what they need to do. That’s leadership.
People all over our city have rallied to find ways to raise funds for disaster relief. That’s leadership.
This may be one of the longest, scariest, most stressful weeks of my life… and yet I’ve been so inspired by the leaders who have stepped up to pull our city through this.
I’m so proud of the people of our community! I love you Nashville!
