"Just Breathe"

COVID Stories - A digital Memoir from the pandemic

Watch "Just Breathe"

As we watch spring erupt around us and hear birds chirping, in some cases, for the first time in years.   As the streets are quieted from the steady thrum of car and pedestrian traffic,  one's mind is freed to ponder other things.  This week's stories are about how the pandemic has impacted careers. It has allowed some people to refocus and others to use their talents at home. 

People all over the world are experiencing an unprecedented health crisis - a viral pandemic that is isolating people and communities in a world that already felt divided. It can be daunting but you don’t have to be alone.

How to Share your Story

Every 3 days, we will issue a new prompt on our website and social media platforms. These prompts can be anything from, "What are your cooking during the pandemic," to "What has social distancing taught you about yourself that you didn't know". We ask that you record your 5-minute story and email it to us with the subject COVID Stories. If you have any questions, you can also email us.
