Let us take care of ourselves and others. Now more than ever, we depend on each other. We have an enemy in the coronavirus that is faceless, raceless, genderless, non-denominational, and bipartisan. And it is an enemy that we all agree on; we are going to overcome. We want to beat him, and we are going to beat him. There is a green light on the other side of this red light that we are in now, and I believe that the green light will be built on the values that we can have right now and that are kindness, resilience, respect, and courage.
