But we’re not out.
Our experiences of this outbreak and unrest are all different, but one thing is clear: in this time of struggle, we have a choice.
We can give in to fear, isolation, division and put up our defenses. Or we can open up. We can find strength in relationships. We can overcome 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.

"People complain about 2020 being the worst year when really it is the year when really it is the year that we didn’t know we needed. The world is changing, we are changing, and it is an uncomfortable feeling. And I have been eternally grateful for every minute of it.”
“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.”

“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.”

“Not very many people knew about my personal connection to mental illness because I never talked about. Now I want to use my experience to help others. Can you believe that 40% of Americans suffer from mental illness now? So many people are living in isolation because of the pandemic and we won’t know until it’s too late. We need to be proactive and reach out to one another. I know I am.”

"I want to see a future where the child I am birthing into the world grows up in a multifaith, multiracial household in the south and that’s not seen as weird."
