“It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.” -Aristotle

Spring is here. In the middle of the pandemic, it is a welcome sight to see the sun shining and birds chirping.

Since the beginning, there has been a fear of the unknown. There is still a lot that we do not know. Therefore, we must focus on what we do know.

We know brave men and women are putting their lives at risk daily by taking care of others.

We know that because of technology we can keep in touch with loved ones around the world.

We know that every morning we are fortunate enough to wake up is an opportunity to make a difference.

“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” Winston S. Churchill
