Is it need? No, it is not simply need.
Is it duty? No, it is not simply duty.
Is it courage? No, it is not simply courage.
Is it honor? No, it is not simply honor.
Is it service? No, it is not simply service.
It is not one of these valiant things,
That we rightfully treasure,
And respect with good cause,
But their root from which grows the values we cherish.
It is hope.
That quiet and invisible force,
Their core belief that manifests valiant virtue.
It begins and ends each brave day with conviction.
The Construction Institute would like to say thank you to all our healthcare workers, caregivers, facilities teams and healthcare AEC firms working tirelessly to heal, protect, comfort and innovate during this time. Thank you for being our heroes of hope.
