As the world faces a pandemic, our community is coming together to address an unprecedented challenge unlike anything most of us have ever seen. Neighbors are helping neighbors. Pharmacies and grocery stores are staying open to serve the public, and their employees are working tirelessly to stock and deliver essentials. On social media, messages of gratitude and hope abound. People are sharing ways to cope, through virtual fitness and meditation classes, video church services, and more. On the frontlines, we have our health care workers.
