Posted March 15, 2018 07:19:56 _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________When the coronas are finally over, a lot of people are going to be celebrating, and I don’t mean with the joy of an Olympic-sized cheerleading team.
More than a million people are still living with COVID-19, and they’re not just going to go out and buy expensive new clothes.
They’re going to get their first ever vaccines, and their first shot of the next generation of vaccine.
The community that has come together and embraced this virus and this crisis, the kind of community that I grew up with, is going to have a different outlook on life than it had before, because it’s not just about getting vaccinated.
I’m a big believer in the power of the community to really help people deal with this and make the transition to a normal life.
In a way, it’s been like an Olympic team.
You know, it doesn’t matter how many medals you get.
People are coming together.
And that’s what I want to be remembered for.
The most important thing to remember, though, is that the outpouring of love, support, and solidarity that has shown up to this moment is so much bigger than what we got into.
There’s so much good that has happened in the last six months that I think is going be remembered forever.
And it’s just been amazing to be a part of.
We’re still in a moment where the entire world is just trying to get on with the job of putting together a plan for the coming year.
We’re in this very precarious position.
I think we’re in the midst of a really exciting, hopeful time.
And, you know, the future is in your hands.
