Grief and Resilience
I’d like to take a moment to honor the families that are embodying grief and resilience during this time. It is important that we acknowledge the historic moments that are happening in our country. Why? Because recognizing big moments can inform our actions in a way that creates a better future.

Friday marked the 19th anniversary of 9/11. Memorial services were held that morning at ground zero. St. Paul’s chapel held prayers for peace and there was The Tribute in Light.
A few ways people continue to help survivors:
Voices for Resilience: is committed to helping families heal after tragedy.
FealGood Foundation: supports first responders, working closely with advocacy groups
Scholarships: 10+ educational scholarships are available
What marked this 9/11 was the emphasis on resilience in the midst of devastation and once again we are called to that. In the midst of a pandemic and an international outcry for equality, thousands are also impacted by wildfires burning in at least 10 western states as of 9/13.

If you are in the rare position of having stability during these times, I invite you to pull from the abundance you have to help those around you-whether that looks like a listening ear, a social media post, raising awareness and money, donating hand me downs or food or offering your expertise. A seemingly insignificant action can have a HUGE impact.
Sending gratitude and strength your way,
