“And The World Came Together”

“And the world came together as the people stayed apart.”

I can’t stress enough how important social distancing is. New Jersey closed all non-essential businesses yesterday and asked that everyone stay home. Colleges have closed for the duration of the semester and graduations are canceled. 

It’s an important time in our state, our country, and our world right now. We’re being asked to stay home to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and “flatten the curve.” In my opinion, it’s a matter of respect, compassion and love for our friends, families, communities, first responders, hospitals, doctors, nurses and all of those who are trying to keep us safe. We have to join together in the fight to stop this virus from spreading.

I’m trying to stay optimistic throughout this quarantine and find something positive in it. I’m doing what I’ve been told and am staying home. I go out on my front porch or in the backyard throughout the day, but I can honestly tell you that I haven’t left my house or been in my car in over 10 days.  

I want to be part of the solution to “flatten the curve,” and not part of the problem in spreading it.

Don’t you?

The truth is that the world is changing, yet I believe that in the end it will change for the better. I have to have faith that it will.

“And the world came together as the people stayed apart.”

What a beautiful sentiment.

Stay calm. Stay safe. Stay home. 

It’s a good thing.

Wishing you love and light,
