From time to time, we will have to face scary situations where a light at the end of the tunnel seems like a distant dream. That’s just a fact of life. But one thing that remains tried and true is that leaning on our community can offer a sense of security that acts as a welcome momentary distraction, if not a cloak of protection, during uncertain times.
As such, in times of difficulty, it becomes increasingly important for us to do what we can to show up for our communities to ensure that we are able to offer the more vulnerable members of our community the support they need.
I’m sure we’ve all heard some version of the saying, “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’” Well, this is our chance, if possible, for us to be the helpers.
Luckily, there are a number of ways to go about this! This wonderful graphic series does a great job of simplifying basic ways that we can do our part and offer support to our communities.
