There's no way to describe what Boulder and the rest of our Front Range communities are experiencing. Our residents are resilient because our city is our love. I've never lived anywhere where the people acknowledge how blessed and fortunate they are to get to live here. That's just a given. My neighbors and I express our thankfulness like a mantra daily. We know we are lucky...even when it feels like our luck has run out.
The sun came out yesterday and the Flatirons stood in all their rugged strength and majesty. It was just long enough to remind me that even under the water and mud and tears, Boulder is still the beautiful, magical place that I am incredibly grateful to call home.
