Silver Linings in the Midst of Crisis

By Guest Contributor on May 1, 2020 12:12:00 PM

May 2020

 

With the COVID-19 outbreak also came a sense of sadness. Events were canceled, trips rescheduled, weddings postponed, time with friends permanently delayed. Even something as simple as a work happy hour seems like a thing of the past. For many, it has felt like life has been placed on pause. But in all the chaos, something beautiful has emerged. Communities have banded together, neighbors have stepped up to lend a helping hand, and, despite social distancing, people have found a way to become closer than ever before. In the midst of crisis there are many silver linings.
