This week's video looks at the pandemic a little differently… as a world full of grieving people. You can also watch and share this video on Facebook and YouTube.

This is a follow up to the video I published on March 18, 2020 entitled “3 Things The World Needs Right Now“.

Whether we'd like to admit it or not, we're all grieving right now for the loss of our old lives and simpler times.

This video isn't to say that elements of our old normalcy will never return, because they will. However we are forever a changed world now.

Much of the conversation I've witnessed over the past few months has been focused around WHAT'S happening, and not enough has been centered around HOW we're doing through it all.

Today's video explores the idea that we as a society are grieving together, and that our emotional journeys should be taken into account when dealing with one another.

Even though quantifiable and logic based conversations need to be had about how we move forward locally and globally, it's important to remember that not everything boils down to numbers, percentages, dollars, and cents.

I hope that the faces in this video help you connect real people to the statistics so that we can have better conversations and build stronger relationships at a time in the world when we need it most.

This video is not intended to attack anyone's political ideologies, however, I do use examples during my recap of the 5 stages of grief that could be considered divisive. My only goal was to take examples of recent conversations I've had and show how they could fit into stages of grief so that we can better relate to each other — not to attack anyone's point of view.

Thanks for watching.
