Together We Will Fight

3/23/20 – To All Our Gafcon Family,

We are in unprecedented times with the COVID-19 virus, and during times of uncertainty our biggest opportunity as humans is to come together to support one another, to learn and to be prepared to adapt to the changes ahead, even though we can’t always see an immediate clear path forward. Always know that our primary focus and responsibility will be to ensure we put the health and wellbeing of our people first, in every single decision we make.

Having weathered my share of adversity, I’ve learned the importance of staying positive and of reaching out to help and support others during troubled times. For reasons unknown to me, two thoughts keep playing in my mind, one is the Serenity Prayer which in various forms has been ascribed to a number of religious philosophers. Its first verse is: “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.” The second thought is the memory of Anne Frank, a teenaged, German-born, Jewish diarist and much discussed victim of the Holocaust who for 25 months, with her family of four, hid in a 424 square foot attic during which she wrote her famous diary. For me, both of these disparate tidbits seem to put current events in an appropriate perspective.

I hope you and your loved ones are staying safe during this extraordinarily difficult time. Each and every one of us is managing so much—both personally and professionally—in the face of tremendous uncertainly. As challenging as this all is, however, it’s also an opportunity for each one of us to lead by example with kindness, patience, compassion and humanity, whenever and wherever we can.

I know I have said it before and I’ll say it again – together we will weather this storm and together we will be back stronger and better than ever.

I’m energized and looking forward to rolling up our sleeves and working together to get this crisis under control and ultimately come out ahead of it all.

Stay safe and healthy.

Please watch take a moment to watch this video shared by philosopher Alan Watts, “The Story of the Chinese Farmer.” Watt explains, “You never know what will be the consequence of the misfortune; or, you never know what will be the consequences of good fortune.”
