There will come a time when March does not remind us of closed office buildings, six feet, masks, hand sanitizer, fear and uncertainty. There will come a time when our memories of the COVID-19 pandemic will be distant. We won’t remember how our lives, though nearly back to normal, were changed - made more hybrid and perhaps more cautious. We may once again take for granted our ability to swing by a friend’s, have a meeting over coffee, or hug our youngest and oldest loved ones. There will come a time.
But it’s not here yet.
We have just completed the third year of this pandemic, and we continue to learn how it has and will shape our lives moving forward. Not only how we act but how we think of our own well being and others has changed in the last three years. We are different.
However, at RJLF and as always, the one thing that has not changed through this unprecedented time is our community of support - our Fellows, Mentors, Board Members and Community Partners. Thank you for sticking with us as the world changed. We are better for it and ever grateful.
