These are difficult times for all of us. We are living through a pandemic that will have far reaching and ongoing effects. It isn't just the deaths that are devastating to so many and the inability to grieve with friends and loved ones but the financial difficulties that so many of us are facing. Everyday we hear a litany of present and future repercussions from this virus that can be incredibly disheartening. While I don't have answers to all this I wholeheartedly believe in the resiliency of the human spirit and that we will prevail. I have often thought that if I can survive the death of my daughter, I can survive most anything. There is no question that this time in our history will change us forever, but I haven't decided yet if it is for better or worse.

I want to wish you and your family the best of health and hope you are staying home, or if not, wearing masks, practicing social distancing, and washing your hands constantly. Please remember that not everyone will be as responsible about staying safe as you and that could put your life and those you love in jeopardy. #careenough .
