I just want to take a moment to thank scores of people throughout the Inland Northwest who wrote to us, emailed and called about the local Big Dig Heroes in their lives.
This is one of the reasons so many of us live here: neighbors being good neighbors. So many of you unselfishly give of your time and spirit to make life a little better for someone else. You may never get a plaque or an award for your efforts, even though you deserve it.
You may never get your name in lights or your face on t-v, but you deserve to be recognized.
On behalf of so many people who were dug out, towed, shoveled, snowblown, given a ride or helped in some way... thank you. Your actions make us all proud. What you do makes a world of difference and you've touched the hearts of so many during this holiday..
To all of you Big Dig Heroes and those who told us about them, thank you and Merry Christmas. May the New Year fill your heart with the warmth you give others.
