Hello all! Hope you are doing well and having a good day! Today's poem is entitled "If" by Rudyard Kipling. This poem might be the best one sent in yet. We thought this poem was about rebuilding ourselves and others. It is about keeping your head when others around you can't. We can relate it to the coronavirus by looking back at what was. We remember school, work, the economy, and social interaction with others. We remember these things, and we look forward into the future. One simple line indicates this. "And lose, and start again at your beginnings

And never breathe a word about your loss." We have lost, and now it is time to rebuild. Rebuild ourselves, piece by piece. It won't be easy. Nobody said it would be. But it is how we need to carry on. We need to be kind and fight our way through this. So today, listen to the good and the bad in life. Not everything will be good. And that's the way we like it. Mourn your losses, and keep going. Keep moving. Fill every second of today with sixty seconds worth of your best life. Thank you, and goodnight.
