We, in fact, are living through history (#Greater Purpose). We may feel stuck at home, bored or lacking the energy or creativity to do something meaningful, but in years to come, our grandchildren will learn about the time of Covid19.

They will learn of the biggest contribution that people could make to this history – and that is staying at home.
How will you remember this time?
