Well, here we are.
All of us.
Every single person living on planet Earth.
My children are already talking about how in 20 years their kids will be reading about this time in history. It’s true. But we are here, NOW. Making history or rather staying at home, while history is being made around us. Hoping that we do not fall victim and that our efforts to flatten the curve and social distance ourselves from our friends, family, co-workers, and communities will work. Shifting our energy from our self-focused lives to the people that risk their lives for us on the front lines during a time of crisis.
The countless articles, updates, and news reports keep us informed, but it’s the personal stories of sacrifice, true sacrifice: choosing your job over your family, risking your own health for the health of others, rising to the occasion and allowing your skillset and passion to kick in that matter most. We’re all in this together. We can all contribute in one way or another. Even if your contribution is staying at home. It’s a time to reflect, be grateful, reset, slow down, put things in perspective, and even on days when the world seems to be crashing down…remain hopeful. Hopeful that we’ll learn and grow and come out better and stronger on the other side.
Until then my friends: stay home, stay safe, stay healthy, and please wash your hands. #alonetogether
