Keep Physical Distance But Stay Socially Connected
Zoom hangouts. FaceTime. Google meets. Meetups online. Social media apps. For those with internet access, the virtual connections have exploded both personally and professionally across the world. A group of college roommates who all live in different states wondered after a Zoom hangout Week 2 of the quarantine
why they never "hung out" like this regularly before.
Months into this pandemic, many are wondering how long this will continue and what will the lasting effects and lessons be for us as community?

As we call our mothers, connect to our friends, work with our colleagues, there is another connection that is strong and motivating through it all. COMMUNITY.
At this time of stress, we may feel overwhelmed by our challenges at hand. It is heartwarming to see so many people
focusing outward to help community.
There are so many inspirational stories...
from the friend who is sewing masks with pockets for extra protection
to the past roommate who is delivering Meals on Wheels for the elderly
to the friend who fed 100 nurses & doctors
with meals from a local restaurant
to the friend who baked pies and delivered them to her girlfriends
to the teacher who used her 3D printer to make masks for a hospital
to the museums who ran a twitter campaign
thanking our healthcare workers and frontline staff.
These stories are the backbone of our communities.
