Greetings all,
 
I’ve found myself reflecting during a poignant time. It has been 75 years since the end of World War II and today, we find ourselves facing another huge challenge—this time a global pandemic. Once again, we are being tested.
 
Though they’re very different events, both have brought about seismic change and asked a lot from us as individuals. We have a great deal to learn from that wartime generation. At the age of 65, I still find myself talking about what I learned from my parents.
 
My parents were prisoners of war during World War II. They personally experienced the invasion and the attacks, and their lives were forever changed. I know that the fear of loss and the determination to carry on is in my genes. It’s probably the greatest lesson I ever learned.
 
My parents taught me resilience — the ability of people, communities, and families to maintain their core purpose and integrity amid unforeseen shocks and surprises. They encouraged me to become adaptable, agile, and to adopt a cooperative approach that would help me weather life’s disruptions. They taught me the most important thing – do not fall apart in the face of disruption. Instead, learn how you can bounce back.
 
The COVID-19 pandemic has propelled us into a whole new circumstance. For some, it may be impossible to return to their previous way of life. Many people have lost loved ones. There’s a whole new normal. I am not one to preach, but we need to improve our resilience and enhance our ability to resist being pushed from our preferred environment while expanding our range of alternatives.
 
I’d encourage all of you to liberate yourselves from traditional constraints. Collaborate with others, because you really don’t have to go it alone.  With a wider array of resources, you can survive and prosper. Just like MacGyver (Remember him?).
 
We are the Isotropic family. We are here for you and with you.
 
Stay safe, God bless.
