This is a moment none of us has experienced and none foresaw. For me personally, it’s been a daily emotional roller-coaster ride. With this immense challenge comes an equally enormous opportunity for all of us to learn from what has happened and to pave a stronger path forward, both as individuals and as a society.
Our interconnectedness has never been more clearly on display. We are united in this situation not as a moral imperative, but as a survival imperative.
And now is the time to fully express the depths of our social and emotional competence on all fronts.
When we apply everything we’ve learned from the science and practice of SEL, we can support our communities and the most vulnerable among us, as well as ourselves.
