Pandemic Reaction Around the World

Around the world, we are all experiencing this pandemic in different ways. Everyone has different circumstances that they are going through. We hear so much fear in the media but how are individuals doing?

The video below is an idea I had to gather reactions from real people 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 is also a great thing to do right now. 

What you accomplish during this pandemic does not define your future, but how you respond, and 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.

  1. 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!!!!!!!!!!!!!
