It’s time to change the narrative.
Yes times are tough.
Our lives have been turned upside down.
People are out of work.
We’re afraid of getting sick.
And we’re even more afraid of making others sick.
So what can we do? (Other than the obvious hand-washing and social distancing.)
It’s time to look for new perspectives.
This is not about denying what is happening.
It’s about finding meaning in what is happening.
It’s about looking for what this situation can teach us about what’s truly important to us.
To that end, I’d like to invite you to enter a competition:
Create an uplifting acronym for the word CORONA.
Below are a few examples.
Crushing Obstacles Really Opens New Avenues
