Sorry, I’m so late on this. Between schoolwork and (virtually) attending classes, I hadn’t had much time to check in with you guys. At times like these, it’s important to find a way to check in with each other–even if we’re all sheltering in place.
Now… it’s time to put some “social” back in social distancing.
Even if it feels like there’s nothing to do or nowhere to go, it’s important to find a way to connect to the people we care about. We’re all going stir crazy from sitting at home all day, but what if we made a new routine, if only temporarily, of reaching out and making someone’s day? Wouldn’t that be a great world to live in?
I know from where I’m sitting, I can see the communities around me–online and offline–coming together to at least try to make the world around them a better place.
Now, more than ever, it’s become clear we need to stick together and look after each other. Because when we do, we can become stronger than a pandemic.
So, here I am, checking in on you all. If only to say, how are you feeling?
This will pass, and when it does, my hope is that we’ll be wiser, more compassionate people for having experiencing it.
May you find peace with yourself, within yourself. …And may we all come together in the face of an uncertain future.
