A message of peace amidst chaos

I couldn't have said it better myself...and much of that is because I haven't had the extremely difficult life experiences that this young man has endured:

Let's continue sharing words of peace, comfort AND wisdom! If we (at least here in Minnesota) can continue to be SMART, protect you senior citizens and vulnerable populations, we won't have to send civilization into a grinding halt. This is in the hands of the public. It is up to us.

Today (March 24), the state of Minnesota has added 27 new cases of COVID-19 to their official list. We are still at just one COVID-19 death, but no one believes that is where it will end.

Here's a great article I saw on the West Central Tribune website. The message from a Minnesotan who is in Italy is, "Just stay home" - and when we are home, we all have access to our usual creature comforts (i.e. - Netflix, if you have it!)...so this is something we can do!

*Update at 1:11 p.m...Italy is not doing well. It is not doing well at all...today they are reporting 743 new deaths and 5,249 new cases related to COVID-19. This is not good. We cannot become like Italy. This is up to all of us!!

"Be well. Stay well."
