Choose friendship April 18 2017

One of the biggest compliments that we receive from our visiting customers is that Montana is wonderful because of the people that live here. We often hear "you're all just so friendly!" We agree, and we love the reputation that our state has built.

Yesterday afternoon a lovely young woman visited the green light and I offered to put her luggage safely behind the front desk while she did some browsing. She explained that she would normally turn down my offer had she been in her home town; that it wouldn't be safe. She said she felt safe here, in Montana. While walking in the dark one evening during her stay, a couple of strangers offered to keep her company and walk her to her car. She told me she was so taken back by Missoula's beauty and the kindness she had been given, that when it came time to pack for her flight back home, she looked outside and began to cry.

At the green light, we believe in connecting with people. We believe in lending a hand. We believe in friendship. You never know how much of a difference you can make in someones life, just by being in it. So, get to know your neighbor, hold the door for the person behind you, wave hello, smile and know that the small choices we make, are often the ones that make a big difference.
