While we face many challenges, I’m reminded every day of the generosity, resilience, and hope that are all around us, in every special neighborhood of this great city. This holiday season is a little different from the last – as we emerge from the height of last year’s pandemic, we are adjusting as a community to what is our “new normal”.
I have been lucky to be able to gather safely with so many communities across San Francisco. From celebrating the holiday season and serving meals to families in Chinatown, to helping pass out gifts to excited kids and ensuring they could let Santa know their wish list this Christmas – these events bring back my own childhood memories of people’s generosity and the community support my own family received. Despite the challenges we have endured together, the spirit of San Francisco is alive and well.
Our City is like a big family. We are united not only in what makes us different, but in our common values – our common purpose of supporting one another. Enjoy your family and friends this season – no matter how loud and raucous you all might get around the dinner table – and together we will ring in the New Year with optimism and a renewed sense of hope.
Wishing you and your family all the best this holiday season – good health, good cheer, and a renewed commitment to take care of each other.
