But we’re not out.
Our experiences of this outbreak are all different, but one thing is clear: in this time of struggle, we have a choice.
We can give in to fear and put up our defenses. Or we can open up. We can find meaning in helping others. We can solve challenges together.
Because it’s in small acts of bravery, caring and connection that we can heal this pain and weave the future we want.

“This pandemic is bringing something out of us. My friends need help. I need help. When you ask for help, you can cut through the contempt we’ve had for each other. If you asked all of us what we want for our family, you would hear the same thing.”
Tennessee Young Farmers and Ranchers,
“These times are calling us to be brave in being vulnerable with each other, but also to be brave in dreaming again.”
Rev. Jen Bailey,
Faith Matters Network,
“We’re really fragile during this time. Everything was about hope, but now we have our backs up against the wall. We’re going to get through this. We’re going to have to work together. What do you need on a basic level? That’s been our response.”
“Now is a really good time to listen to one another. Just call your neighbor and ask what this new reality looks like and feels like for them and just listen. We are all neighbors, and it’s about just seeing concentric circles from there.”
Whitney Kimball Coe,
“I want to use this moment as a way to talk about things we’re uncomfortable talking about. We can figure this out together so we can be in a better place going forward.”
Spruce Haven Farm,
“I have learned that there is suffering in this life. And as we learn to accept what we’ve lived through, we discover the kind of human beings we really are.”
