There is no doubt that this season continues to be difficult and exhausting for each of us in so many different ways. Yet there is hope in knowing that the season of COVID-19 will end. It will not last forever and we can get through this together! We can! And we will! Social distancing has not divided us but rather been an amazing battle cry for unity.
One of the silver linings to come out of this difficult season is a global appreciation for each other. We are standing in unified gratitude for our everyday heroes and becoming heroes ourselves. As we are required to physically step back from our communities, our eyes have been opened to how much we need each other, or even more simply, how much we want to be together. It’s a beautifully humbling realization. I pray that it is something we can hold on to long after coronavirus is gone.
It has been incredible to see how people in our Starfish Project communities are both celebrating heroes in our lives as well as being heroes to one another.
So today, we want to celebrate you! Thank you for being heroes of hope! Read some of our favorite heroic acts below and please share more with us in the comments.
