Four Lessons We Learned from 2020 and Will Take Into 2021

This week the world will ring in a new year. As we sing ‘Auld Lang Syne’ this season, we might not be reflecting on the passing year with quite the same fondness and sentimentality as we have in prior days. Let’s face it – 2020 was strange and stressful, and most of us are very glad to see it go.

While we are happy to welcome 2021, we can acknowledge that 2020 had it’s positive side. When it comes to doing business, I think we all can say we learned a lot about perseverance, adaptation, and determination. (more…)

2020 – A Year to be Thankful in the Midst of Uncertainty

For many, this Thanksgiving will seem much different than the holiday has traditionally been in the past. Faces will be missing from family celebrations and groups gathered at the table will be significantly smaller.

Political turmoil, a health crisis, and an uncertain economy may have many of us feeling somewhat lost and fearful in a way we’ve not experienced before. While times like these are trying, they also offer us an opportunity to be grateful. Even if that means we have to look a little harder to find the things for which we can be thankful. (more…)

Today is a day of remembrance. June 6, 2019 is the 75th anniversary of Allied forces invasion on the beaches of Normandy, France. This decisive operation marked a turning point in World War II, giving the Allied forces a strong foothold in the battle against occupying Nazi Germany.

The Army’s D-Day history website provides an overview of this event:

“The Normandy beaches were chosen by planners because they lay within range of air cover, and were less heavily defended than the obvious objective of the Pas de Calais, the shortest distance between Great Britain and the Continent. Airborne drops at both ends of the beachheads were to protect the flanks, as well as open up roadways to the interior. Six divisions were to land on the first day; three U.S., two British and one Canadian. Two more British and one U.S. division were to follow up after the assault division had cleared the way through the beach defenses. (more…)
