Jerry Week at The Community

This week The Community celebrates the life, work, and soul of Jerome “Jerry” Garica, who was born on the first day of August in 1942 and sadly passed on August 9, 1995. Clearly one of the most decent bastards of all time, Jerry left quite a decent mark on our world through beautiful art in various mediums, promoting a gentle love and goodness that exists in everything, but still often needs some people to shine the light on it now and again.

Known primarily for his groundbreaking guitar work with The Grateful Dead, Jerry was also a skilled painter, and writer — all the while emitting a humane, kind-hearted, vibe that The Community strives to emulate. There is no doubt that Jerry has a profound influence on everything The Community seeks.

Indeed, we are all seekers in some way or another. What we look for depends on who we are, but at The Community we seek to bring the spirit of Jerry to anyone we may have the slightest influence on. That’s essentially our mission.

Because this is Jerry Week at The Community, Mr. Garcia will serve as our Decent Bastard of the Week. It is our sincere hope that somewhere up in heaven Jerry is admiring what he sees. It’s also our hope that all of our readers take some time this week to reflect on Jerry Garcia, what he stood for, and be appreciative of all the decency he bestowed upon our beautiful world.
