"One thing that strikes me as notable is that we are being asked to practice “social distancing” - to stay home and cancel everything. This is a compelling opportunity to recognize that in addition to minimizing the likelihood of exposure ourselves, social distancing is also an act of generosity and compassion toward others by eliminating our interactions as a possible vector for viral transmission. Let that sink in – the primary motivation for social distancing is to benefit others.”
Keep calm, stay well and wash your hands!
