Remember the Cowboy Code during challenging times like these.

We end the day knowing we gave it everything we had.

We dream only as big as the sky.

We know challenges come with pain, but pain will not win.

We have a passion to do what's right, even when it's hard.

We stand for what matters, even if we stand alone.

We finish what we start.

Being a Cowboy isn't in our clothes, it's in our character.
