There’s a lot of good news out there, too.
Communities are coming together like never before. Neighbors are helping each other and making sure the vulnerable individuals in their midst are being well taken care of. People are sharing moments of profound gratitude and connectedness.
It’s a beautiful thing to see.
So if you find yourself being overwhelmed by all of the negative news, look for the good!

Together we WILL get through this and be stronger and more resilient than ever before.
To your health and prosperity,
