Living through, or even observing these moral, economic and health crises continue to unfold is taking an emotional toll. We have three choices in response to a crisis. We can fight, take flight or freeze. We can move in with high energy and take control; we can move away, going about our business in denial, or we can stop.

People have moved through heroism and adaptation at this point in the pandemic crisis and are finding themselves depleted. We recognize our lost certainty, command and control. Apathy, anxiety, fear, anger and grief are consuming and disrupting us.
