Focusing on the positive

To the Editor:

In the midst of the current situation on the Island, it’s important to focus on the positive. It’s been impressive to see how J.B. Blau has responded as a business owner and community member. Despite the pressures of owning high-overhead businesses that have been idled by state decree, he’s responded by focusing intently on the well-being of his employees, as well as making contingency plans to provide emergency meals for the community if there are supply shortfalls. 

Anyone can make lofty speeches when times are good, but it’s when the chips are down, that character is tested and revealed. I know that when this crisis is over, which it eventually will be, I will continue to support J.B.’s businesses, and I encourage everyone else to do the same.
