Would you have imagined, as you toasted in the New Year, that all of the bars, clubs, restaurants, hotels, and city squares would be closed just a few months later? We would have thought wow, a zombie apocalyptical event had over taken the world. Close, it was a virus.
Here we are at the dawning of the COVID-19 pandemic. History will record how the world shutdown responding to COVID-19.
In early April every governmental report, news outlet, blog post, and conversation painted the direst circumstance and fear that millions will contract the virus and die. Correspondingly, we readily gave up our freedom, committed trillions to bailouts, and worse isolated ourselves from everyone. Social distancing became social isolation.
Almost everything we see and hear makes reference to COVID and the negativity surrounding the pandemic. If we let it all in, our minds can fill with anxiety, anger, frustration, fear, sadness, and depression.
We need a respite away from COVID, COVID, COVID...
We choose how we respond.
We must seek out the good, the sacrifices, and the kindness happening all around us.
Come here to share a moment of peace as we illuminate Acts of Kindness during the COVID-19 Crisis.
Mr. (Fred) Rogers once said:
“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”
We are finding helpers everywhere we look. The more we look for them, the more we see.
Our stories will give you moments of hope, maybe a smile or two, or a joyous tear. A place to honor the kindness of helpers all around you, whose acts may go unsung in the world today.
We must never forget the acts of kindness that brought us together as family.
We want to hear from you. Please share your stories and eave us a comment to amplify the posts and stories on our site.
