As the pandemic continues onward and our world becomes more uncertain each day, I’d like to share some thought’s that I’ve been having.
First, I want to thank you. Each week you bravely tell me the stories of your lives. We sit on our computers and talk about the things you cannot change, the things you are struggling with, and the things that scare you. Your bodies have been shaking with anxiety, your minds have been racing and your hearts have been pounding. Together you have cried, yelled, sighed, smiled, and laughed.
You’ve lost loved ones
You’ve been trapped in your home
You’ve connected with old friends in new ways
You’ve been afraid of getting killed or physically harmed
You’ve been trying to get by with little to no income
You’ve decided to become more involved in helping others
You’re afraid of dying or getting sick
You’re depressed and lonely
You’ve sacrificed your wants and needs so that others can remain healthy
Throughout our conversations one thing has been clear. You are here, together, trying to make life work right now. You are fighting to stay positive. You are loving and you are doing. Plans have changed and you are adapting along side them.
One of the things that I am most grateful for is that technology allows me the ability to continue the work that I love the most and to be of good use. If I can be of any help to you in this time, please reach out. I’m in this with you. I am feeling your fears, your passion, and your hope. We can get through this together.
