It feels to me that we’re all in need of some good news.
I have some great news for the young (ish) and the old (ish), but before I get there, I’d like to encourage EVERY person who is reading this to:
Keep your head in the game!
Yes — we can so easily get caught up in seemingly-nefarious schemes on every side. Whether you are Team ReOpen or Team StayLockedDown … there are data points and new stories plentifully available to bolster your case.
But what are you doing about what YOU can control?

Many people receive these emails that I send out. But in point of fact, there might be only a small handful that have actual power to enact change by influencing minds or implementing action.
So what are all the rest of us doing?
When we argue on Facebook or shake our collective fists at the wind, we are merely creating yet more noise. Let’s raise our game. Let’s be the people who pull one another out of the pit, and provide tangible help and encouragement.
This is a difficult season for everyone, including our political leaders.
Believing the best, let’s focus on the things within our control and leave the arguing to the small-minded and easily-distracted.
