The big elephant

Let’s just talk about what’s on all of our minds: the coronavirus which is currently taking over the world. How do we react? How are you handling it?

I’m sure you are following the news like the rest of us. Being bombarded by the media at every moment of the day. And I don’t want to add to your concern, your stress.

So I just want to say to you, we will be ok. We need to be careful, look after the ones we love. Be responsible. Look after your friends and neighbors. Make good decisions. (You probably don’t need 6 cases of toilet paper, but I’m not judging you.)

I know everyone is in a state of mild panic. Schools are closed. Businesses are closed. But there are ways to stay connected and help out our communities without causing more concern. Drop off food to a neighbor who may be in need. Take surplus food to your local food bank. Wash your hands. Stay home if you aren’t feeling well. Buy a gift card to your favorite restaurant or boutique so that they could have the funds now, while you could stay away for the time being. We are in this together.

What concerns are on your radar? What are you thinking about this weekend?
