“For me, I am driven by two main philosophies: know more today about the world than I knew yesterday and lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you.” ― Neil deGrasse Tyson

I have brief thoughts to share tonight as the pandemic of COVID-19 unfolds around us and overwhelms many of us. To begin, situations like this reveal what we can’t control. But how we respond is absolutely within our power. Compassion is a profound and powerful response to crisis.

So as we work through this, as global citizens and individuals, let’s respond compassionately. Stay safe, love big, and pray more.
