“Jeremiah Glisson is the Public works Operation Director…”, a poet and a writer? Nicely put Jeremiah, great perspective!

Mr. Glisson touches on the fact that most of us are privileged in our lives here. Yet we still have the responsibility to conserve what little undeveloped land we still have, ensure affordable housing for our young people and workers, provide living wages for our workers, and rectify the historical and ongoing racial, social, and economic injustices to many members of our community. Lots of people talk about freedom, but there is no freedom without a consequent responsibility, and the larger the freedom, the greater the responsibility.

What a breath of fresh air from Jeremiah Glisson. It started my day correctly. We should all take time to smell the roses.

Jeremiah, thanks for sharing as I know you put a lot of thought into writing this piece. I fully agree that we are blessed living in communities like Fernandina Beach and while we don’t have the life-threatening issues that others face in other parts of the world, our community is our world and we all want what we believe to be the best for the community. Of course, perspectives differ creating debate but hopefully it remains civil. Sadly, all to often it deteriorates into personal attacks. Thanks for all you and your fellow city employees do in keeping Fernandina Beach such a special place to live, work and visit.
