Every few months, Julie Nolke creates a video Explaining the Pandemic to my Past Self. The conversations highlight how strange this year has been and how explaining it to someone from the past might be impossible.
- Economic Recession
- Presidential Election
- Murder Hornets
- Black Lives Matter Protests
- Deaths of Kobe Bryant, Chadwick Boseman, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg
- Explosion in Beruit
- Etc. Etc.
The year has been relentless.
While gathered in a socially distant outside small group two weeks ago, a friend reminded us all that we can be relentless right back at this year and the struggles of this world. By not giving up, we change things. It might be as small as voting, or may be as huge as protesting for over 100 days.
The world is spinning faster than a merry-go-round on the playground. Hold on. Be relentless. You matter.
