Hang in There

Hang in there! I think we’ve all seen at least one of those iconic kitten posters in our lives; the messages motivate us to persist, to ‘not give up,’ or to ‘stick it out.’ They never really tell us to ‘reach for the stars’ or ‘take on the world,’ and I think this has real value given our current situation.

It is definitely an unprecedented time for all of us, so no doubt it has been hard to mentally and physically adjust. That is why we must prioritize our health, and just carry on. It’s not going to end because of one person, it takes ALL of us. Those on the frontlines—scientists, doctors, nurses, EMTs, police, and fire—rely on us to stay home and stay safe, just as we’re relying on them to help beat this virus.

No matter how tired we get of hanging by ourselves, the only way to get down is together.
