Two words: grit and compassion. When humanity struggles, we develop grit and compassion for others. I’m confident we will come out stronger from COVID-19. We may have to take three steps back but eventually; we will take one giant step towards progress. On 9/11, I was a college student at Columbia in New York. It was a horrific day for everyone across America, and for those living in NYC, the events hit very close to home — literally and figuratively. Despite the terrible events, Americans came together to lift each other up. It was emotional and inspiring. I believe we will have this same uplifting time after we defeat COVID-19 but it is going to be on a global scale, rather than just a national one.
