It’s easy to get caught up in the panic around the COVID-19 outbreak, but when are we at our best? When we slow down, when we think rationally and critically and when we HELP each other. When the Apollo 13 oxygen tank failed and the lunar module was in danger of not returning to earth, Gene Kranz, the lead flight director overheard people saying that this could be the worst disaster NASA had ever experienced- to which Kranz is rumored to have responded, “With all due respect, I believe this will be our finest hour.” Our communities are no stranger to disasters, fires, floods and through each test we realize that working together brings out the best in us all! If you see random acts of kindness out in your communities or have an uplifting message to share, then give us a shout! You’re more than welcome to call us at 406-800-1045 and leave us a message with a random act of kindness that you saw in our community! We’ll share these messages on air and continue to remind our listeners that even quarantined we can step up and help each other.
It’s been a long year and we are proud of those who remain vigilant in protecting themselves and their neighbors by practicing physical distancing, mask wearing and quarantining when necessary. We understand that the pandemic fatigue is real! It’s been a tough year but it’s what we have to do to remain vigilant and united in the face of this terrible virus. And even though Governor Gianforte has lifted the mask mandate, we still require them for visitors to our studios and support the Missoula City County Health Departments mask mandate. We have to do everything we can to keep our small staff and community healthy!
