Our response, as parents, communities, leaders, and governments, to the COVID-19 crisis will forever shape our children and the generations to come.
We can react to the situation out of fear, or we can choose to react to the situation out of love, strength, and courage. Choosing love, doesn’t mean that concern about the crisis isn’t warranted. It doesn’t mean that the situation isn’t scary and uncertain. Choosing love doesn’t mean that it’s unreasonable to feel nervous or anxious about the unknown.
Rather, choosing to react out of love, strength, and courage means we can acknowledge our fears and respond with productive behavior. In the end, choosing to react out of love gifts our children and future generations with strength, resilience, and hope.
