We might be in this crazy pandemic together, but everyone has different circumstances that they are going through. We hear so much fear in the media and we are being bombarded with ideas on how we are supposed to feel. No one can tell someone else how they are supposed to feel.
The video below is an idea I had to gather reactions from real people from around the globe.
Some individuals are being very productive while others are taking the time to get some much needed rest. Catching up on sleep and other activities that focus on health are also a great thing to do right now.
What you accomplish during this pandemic does not define your future, but how you respond, how gracious you are to others, might.
My goal in this episode is to help us all be a little bit more understanding and enjoy the wide beautiful variety of people all around us.
Some of these clips were very moving, others made me laugh. It was so great to see and hear from my friends. I hope you enjoy and find camaraderie from around the world.

Trin, you’re awesome Bro! LIke laugh out loud awesome! Hahahaha!
He is quite awesome. He keeps me entertained ?
What an interesting post. So easy to get caught up in our own individual lives that we don’t think about people all over the world who are experiencing the same thing as we are and maybe not in as good of conditions as what we have. Trin is a hoot!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes, Trin is hilarious, he keeps me entertained:)
Love the great collection of videos, and thanks so much for including us! It really brings into perspective how much we all have in common – and how much of this is a shared experience, no matter where we are. And Trin cracked us up at the end 🙂
Thank you so much for being a part of this! It was great to see your faces and hear your voices.
Laughed out loud, Trin!
He is why I’m enjoying the shelter in place ?
