It’s hard to believe we’ve been living in pandemic-mode for an entire year. As COVID-19 took hold last spring, none of us knew what to expect.

It’s been a year since COVID-19 turned our world upside down. The pandemic has proven to be an enduring crisis that we will continue to recover from for years to come, but within the hardship and loss, we have found hope for the days ahead.
