“Crisis does not create character; it reveals it.” – Jim Stovall, Wisdom for Winners
In just a few short months, our world has changed.
Even the word “pandemic” is scary. Health officials have labeled the coronavirus as “novel,” because the human species has never been exposed to it. We seemingly have no natural antibodies. As the news of the virus has unfolded, and nations and communities accepted that our first (and possibly only) line of defense was the concept of “social distancing,” I gained a newfound respect for survivors of previous pandemics. The Bubonic Plague. The Spanish Flu. Or even 1612 when Native Americans welcomed the Pilgrim settlers traveling from Europe bringing with them smiles, smallpox, and leptospirosis.
