"They say nature abhors a vacuum. Fear often fills a vacuum – of understanding. When we don’t know what to expect in trying times, we often fear the worst. The adage, ‘Hope for the best. Prepare for the worst’, is sound advice, but when the worst is unclear, unformed, unknown – preparing becomes more difficult, and whatever comfort and solace that effort might provide becomes more elusive.
Seek two things: Knowledge and Connectedness. Knowledge is where you begin to fight back. These are trusted world, federal, state, and local sources of knowledge.
And, most importantly, here at home:
Connectedness. We are all stronger together than apart. Connect frequently with family and friends – even distant ones. Remember those times when you meant to contact – follow up – and didn’t because your busy day was filled. While you are at home being socially distant, (and smart) this is that opportunity to connect – and reach out to others who matter to you.
Beyond washing them often, what better way to spend all that time on your hands?
If the Internet is one thing, it is connectedness.
Beyond social media, there is text, email and – Virtual Visits Via Video. That’s – Victory.
And – as always –
