Delaware Gov. Jack Markell launched his blog today at to share stories of compassion, commitment and innovation across the State of Delaware.

"I want to highlight the people and businesses that make up our great state," said Markell.

I want this blog to be a new outlet to share these stories across the state."

"I have been overwhelmed and deeply moved by the response," wrote Governor Markell in an email to employees. "As I read your messages, the feelings of gratitude conveyed by and for our co-workers across the full spectrum of jobs was as strong as can possibly be expressed in words. I want to share your stories and so many others I'm hearing about the issues that affect all Delawareans. I am launching my blog today, beginning with your experiences."
