Paul Huschilt's Expect Everything
We Will Get Through This - Together

Times like these bring us together and keep us apart.
Like so many right now, I’m trying to sort out what’s happening around us.  I was away and had to find a way home in a hurry.  Fortune smiled at me before panic did and I was lucky to find a route back.  So now, in mandatory travel quarantine, my mind has the time to do some previously unheard of mental gymnastics.
Of all the contortions of emotions and ideas, I’m struck by one main thought – as a planet we are figuring this out.  We have a common goal.  We are starting to work as one to fix this.  My grumbling about the stragglers aside, it’s pretty astonishing that we are coming together in ways even the invention of the internet couldn’t conceive.
Stranger still, we’ve come together with the solution to Stay Apart!  As one we are fixing this through isolation.
And even in isolation we are coming together.  I’ve been the recipient of incredible kindness.  My neighbours have been absolutely awesome.  Knowing I’m quarantined and have been away, they insisted that I didn’t have enough food in the house.  They went to the local supermarket and joined the line when it opened.  At 8:00 in the morning I got a text.  “Go to the door :-)”.  3 bags of groceries.  Healthy fresh food.  Every food group, with more fruits and vegetables than even I keep in the house.  And a bag of corn chips for balance and sanity (and salinity).
It’s still hard to fathom what’s happening, but think about how we are going to beat this – together.  And if you’re able, now’s the time to lend a hand.  It may be a sanitizer covered gloved hand or some support you can offer from a distance.
And thanks to health care workers everywhere.
Now go wash your hands.  Seriously.  Wash your hands.
