Managing fear and health in times of covid-19

This is a picture of my bridal shower some years ago, a beautiful event that marked a transition in life. When I was preparing for it, I remember wishing so strongly that the occasion would highlight the sisterly bonds of family and friends, and it really did. Reminiscing on times like these, in the not too distant past, deepens my sadness of what we are missing and what more could be lost due to how we are confronting this global crisis.
