A message from the Northbound Gear team during these trying times.
The world is facing an obstacle we have not experienced in our lives.
There are people getting sick and some are dying.
Businesses shutting down and people losing jobs.
Our freedoms have been taken from us as governments implement lock downs and closures of schools and churches.
As we are asked to isolate, there is loneliness, anxiety and fear.
These are trying and uncertain times.
But we will get through this.
As we face this challenge, humanity is showing what it means to come together.
Hospital staff and front line workers are putting themselves at risk to help others, showing us exactly what heroes do.
We are seeing volunteers donate their time, money, food and emergency supplies to help people they don’t even know.
There is more compassion and empathy than ever before.
We are seeing what is possible when we are united, working as one.
What is happening in the world today can lead to a plethora of negative emotions.
You are not alone in feeling this way.
We are going through this together, and we will come out of this stronger.
We will stick together, as one.
There will be days that are more challenging than others, but we must never lose faith.
With the faith that things will get better, we will keep moving..
..Onward and upward.
