Cheers and thanks to the dozens of business owners, teachers and everyday folks who went out of their way to help stranded strangers and neighbors across Atlanta and Georgia. They and the first responders, public works employees and volunteers by their selfless acts helped save lives and kept serious injuries down to a minimum, while they helped move vehicles, offered a blanket or hot chocolate, opened their doors for tired drivers to sleep in their aisles and other random acts of kindness. While there will be much written and even more discussed about what went right and what went wrong in the city and state’s preparation and execution of the emergency response plan, we shouldn’t lose sight of the courageous acts of our neighbors, families and friends.

Again, thank you all.
