Some workers had to continue to work, knowing their health was at risk by doing so. People were asked to stay home. Some were quarantined, and some were (and are) afraid to leave their homes. And people have died without loved ones beside them because not even family members were allowed in the rooms or the facilities. People have experienced a whirlwind of emotions over the course of several months: fear, anxiety, anger, frustration, irritation and depression, just to name a few. Individuals have asked the questions: What is going on? Is this the end of the world? Is God judging us? When will things get back to normal? Will they get back to normal? Many have felt powerless. Some have wondered, “Is there anything I can do about what is going on? Is there anything I can do to help the world get back to the world we once knew?” People have been searching for hope, security and peace. And in a time of so much uncertainty, in a time with so much social unrest, it is crucial for individuals to find and have a sense of hope. It is vital communities gather together, join together in unity and in harmony, setting aside their differences and combining their efforts for the greater good of one another, their community and the future of America and the world.
