Now is a time to stay at home.
What a wonderful world! And what in the world do we do now? Heed the messages to self-quarantine so we do not spread this virus to others who are more vulnerable than ourselves.
You are not alone; the entire world is going through this. My thoughts…..One day we’ll be listening to songs on the radio about where we were during coronavirus. The COVID-19 virus is this generation’s 9/11. Both events have had global impact and changed the way we go about everyday life.
I’ve lived through several natural disasters, including the Loma Prieta Earthquake in October 1989 and the events of September 11, 2001, but I’ve never lived through anything like this.
It’s okay to worry, to be angry, fearful and to have hope. It’s okay to cry, show emotion, and have hope. It’s okay to protect your loved ones, employees, neighbors, and have hope.
One of my favorite messages was discovered written on a wall at one of the camps during the Holocaust:
I believe in the sun even when it is not shining;
I believe in love even when I cannot feel it;
I believe in God even when He is silent.
As we’re all social distancing, I suggest we turn off the national cable channels with all the stats and watch the Hallmark channel instead. Equip yourself with information from credible sources:
What else can we do in these quiet moments?
If you have or had upcoming travel, let your trusted travel advisor do the work for your cancelations or postponements. We are your advisors through good times and rough times, and we work tirelessly to advocate for you.
We are responding to changes as fast as those on the frontlines are changing the rules to deal with the pandemic. As time allows day dream of a time when we can see the world again!
Have hope, have patience and be safe.
