We're In This Together
In these difficult times it’s understandable that many of us feel anxious and helpless, but it’s important that we remember we all have an obligation to take care of and look out for one another. We must be mindful of our privileges that give us access to healthcare, resources and numerous networks of support while others are left to cope with this pandemic alone.
Instead of responding with fear, anxiety and suspicion, choose to respond with compassion, empathy and generosity.
Remember, we're all in this together and it's more important now than ever to not only think about ourselves, but to think of those who would be most affected by this crisis.
