I witnessed the best in what it means to be part of a community in the last week and a half. The response from individuals, businesses, and organizations within Franklin and the surrounding towns is beyond adequate description. As a search and rescue manager for almost twenty years, I have served other communities during a prolonged search operation, in all that time I have never seen the outpouring of support in food, water, and selflessness the way that I did here in Franklin.
The officers and searchers who came to assist Franklin last week commented that as they worked though neighborhoods there were signs of support, coolers of water, and offers to use restrooms in private residences. This truly exemplifies the fabric of our community and one that I am immensely proud to serve.
