In turn, I just want to personally take this time to thank our user-base and other Moderators. There wouldn’t be a need for us without your regular contributions of thought and time to this site.

But more whole-heartedly, I’d like to especially thank everyone for the last few months. We’re all experiencing varying levels of uncommon concerns. Our respective geographical locations may have us experiencing things in very different ways, both professionally and personally. Global events may be affecting some of us in ways others aren't aware of as well.

We’re all in front of our computers or mobile devices, and although many of us know each other beyond our Army.ca personas, several more of us are strangers. Sometimes it can be easy to forget that in some cases there may be a lot more behind our typed-out words than just what we’re seeing on our screens. I know I’m guilty of that.

There’s been a few hiccups here and there. But ultimately, I’ve really noticed the overall constructive candour everyone has been trying to maintain while discussing some very complicated and sensitive topics. I obviously have no idea what’s being discussed in PMs. But publicly, I personally appreciate the effort being put in to remaining calm while moving discussions forward in a productive manner.

So this is my personal thank you to everyone. I’ve enjoyed reading many differing viewpoints on sometimes controversial matters, even when I share a different opinion. There have been many responses to my own posts that I’ve wanted to address, but if I speak honestly, sometimes I just haven’t the time nor focus to dedicate to answering fully. I always ponder everyone’s comments though.

I do hope everyone, their friends, family and other loved ones are safe and healthy. These strange times have certainly been disruptive, but my hope is that some positivity will come from it all eventually.

Take care all
