We’re All In This Together
As the current coronavirus pandemic grows, many of us might start to feel overwhelmed, wondering when this will end. Since the United States now has the most confirmed coronavirus cases in the world, it’s easy to see that we are all in this together. So, how do we come together while keeping safe during this time of social distancing? There are many ways to lend a hand and help make this pandemic a thing of the past, sooner rather than later.
Follow Executive Orders and Community Guidelines
No matter where you’re located in the United States, it’s important to work together as a nation to flatten the curve. Some states have strict executive orders handed down from their respective governors to stay at home while other communities are simply encouraging social distancing to make it less likely for community members to get the coronavirus. As a solid unit and country, we need to pay attention to local officials, abide by the rules and guidelines in place, and do all that we can to eliminate this fast-spreading illness.
Help Local Organizations and Health Professionals
Since many of us are in our homes 24/7 these days, it’s a good time to check out the needs of local organizations and health professionals to see what we can do to help. Go online on your community websites and social media pages to see if there’s a way to help out from your home. Whether it’s donating to a local charity in need or making masks for healthcare workers, there is sure to be a cause that needs assistance in your local area. We can embrace the American spirit of helping one another, especially during this concerning time.
Embrace Others Through Technology
As we can’t embrace others like we used to because of social distancing, it’s still possible to send a virtual hug via technology. Send someone a text or an email to tell them you’re thinking about them and hope they’re well. Or hop on a Skype call to see others face-to-face. Social interaction is extremely important these days. Since we can’t do it in person, we have to choose the next best thing...technology. After all, we’re all in this together and it’s good to know that we are not alone!
Since we are all in this together, it’s important to not let issues or politics divide us. No matter what individual beliefs we may have, there is no time like the present to come together and get through this upsetting time alongside our fellow Americans.
