I saw a post the other day that read, "2020 is like looking both ways to cross the street and getting hit by an airplane." Yup. Pretty much sums it up. People around the world are sick, hospitals are full, schools and businesses are closed. We all need tremendous amounts of humanity, kindness, and gratitude as we recognize we're all doing the best we can in a rough situation.
We compiled this list of U.S. national resources. If it helps even one person, it was well worth our time. Please share it freely. Please let us know about any organizations you think we should add. Please keep checking in with your state and local government sites for relevant information. We're sending all our best wishes to you and yours. Stay healthy and safe.
