May is Photography Month, a time to not only enjoy snapping photos and capturing memories, but a time to look at the world differently, through the eyes of a photographer.
After all, photography gives us the ability to freeze a moment in time and cherish it forever. Photographers may record important moments in history, capture the emotion of a single memory, or stage scenes to send messages. In the end, however, what makes a photograph special is its subject matter and composition.
This collage captures a snapshot across the Birmingham Green campus. The displays of heartfelt emotions of gratitude and joy expressed by our residents and team members, whether looking at family photos, sharing jokes, relaxing on the swing set, or serving others. The donations from our local and surrounding area communities added to the uplifted spirits of our residents and team members, thank you.
If there’s one thing that COVID-19 has taught us, it’s that we should be looking out for others. What impacts one person directly impacts us all indirectly. That means taking care of one another, even if the other person is a complete stranger.
Right now we’ve been asked to care for everyone by practicing physical distancing and wearing the proper personal protective equipment (masks). But I think that taking care of everyone implies much more than that. It means adopting a culture of kindness and gratitude. It means habitually thinking about the welfare of others.
