I sit here on the night of 23 March 2020.
Holy shit, what an incredible last couple weeks its been. For now, it also seems that things are likely to get a lot worse before they get better.
The silver lining is that times like these really do exacerbate the most important things in life: family, friendship, health and love. These are the things that matter.
Underpinning these aspects has to be the premise of hope. Hope that we will get through difficult times. Hope that the future will be better than today. Hope that banding together will lead to improved outcomes. Hope really does underpin all our motivations and actions.
