Searching for your silver linings
April 16, 2020 - One month ago, we spent most of our time rushing to meetings, missing important social events, working late hours and ordering take-out dinners multiple times a week.

We have been given the extra time to create deeper connections with our loved ones in our homes or by using newfound technologies.
