When a group faces a crisis, it either binds together or breaks apart.

Binding together is a much more successful strategy in facing and overcoming an enemy. Breaking apart results in us becoming alone, vulnerable and makes us easy pickings for any malevolent force. Think about lions stalking and attacking a herd of zebras.

This Covid crisis has tried its hardest to divide us. I want to encourage you to do whatever you can to bind together, work together, stay with the pack, connect with family and friends, re-join your support groups. You need them, they need you.

Malevolent forces want your alone, isolated, afraid, perhaps feeling rejected, even like you’re the only one with the truth. If this describes where you have ended up, re-join your people, find your herd.
