In light of all of this panic and all of this fear, be kind.
Be kind anyway, but especially right now, be it more than you have before.
You might think this COVID-19 fear is overblown. Or maybe you're downright petrified.
Either way, our country and our world are dealing with an ever-evolving crisis that will impact people in ways we just haven't ever experienced in this lifetime.
People are being forced to make hard decisions about events they love, travel they've been planning for months, the safety of their loved ones, and their day-to-day lifestyles.
We could all use a little more empathy, compassion, and patience.
Reach out to friends who might have it harder than you and see if you can help.
Let your friends and family know you care.
And of course, wash your hands!
