Richmond County Sheriff's Office joins the #aworldofhearts-USA movement


            In response to the current COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, Richmond County Sheriff James E. Clemmons, Jr., along with his complete staff, is proud to join with others who are displaying their support and solidarity with not only the residents of Richmond County, North Carolina, but also with the entire State of North Carolina and Nation in the #aworldofhearts movement.  A display of cut out hearts placed in a window for all to see is a simple, yet profound way to make this statement.  “I want to reassure the residents of Richmond County, my staff and I are working together to continue to provide you with the highest level of professionalism and safety during these difficult and uncertain times,” Sheriff James E. Clemmons said. “We are all in this together.”  The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office is pleased to join with others participating in the #aworldofhearts movement, including the Richmond County Chamber of Commerce and the Richmond County Tourism Development Authority, in this worthwhile show of unity.

             According to reports, the #aworldofhearts on Facebook began in Bismarck, North Dakota with a resident, Mandy Gill, who created the #aworldofhearts-ND Facebook account page, which has now become the #aworldofhearts Facebook page, with nearly 207,000 members and growing.  The page has now gathered together members from all across the nation, who are proudly posting pictures of hearts in their windows, as well as those they see as they venture outside of their residences.  The #aworldofhearts movement has taken hold and continues to spread to more and more areas of the nation, with members from the East Coast to the West Coast and everywhere in between showing their support by filling their windows with hearts they display.  The #aworldofhearts Facebook account page states it is a group “created to follow the world vision of filling windows with hearts.  By filling your Windows with hearts your neighbors and those passing by will know we are in this together!  Everyone is welcome from ANYWHERE! ❤.”
