As a community lets do our best to share hope during uncertain timesPosted by: joe Mungai | Posted on: March 19, 2020
Amid the confusion, uncertainty, and constantly-changing environment under the COVID-19, I wanted to remind you that you are part of a community and that you are not alone during this time.
Why do you need to maintain a sense of a community? because it’s easy for us to feel alone or isolated in a time of social distancing. This is especially true now, when our need of the community is at it’s highest level.
It’s also important to not lose hope no matter how difficult the situation feels and look right now. Hope is important because when the world feels uncertain, it’s important to know there is something to pull you forward.

We are in this together … separately
I have posted helpful information on a new site that I am putting together to help those who might be searching for current updates from trusted sources on how best to deal with the current epidemic. (in case you received this message through email this is for you, otherwise if you are reading my post you are already inside the site. keep reading to know how to access helpful information)
The website where I have this information is not completed yet and so it has not been launched although there is valuable content that’s ready for access, but I felt compelled to put this resource in one location where its accessible by everyone who might be in need.
In the coming days and weeks, as we get more updates, I plan to upload more reliable information from trusted sources on this new platform.
Feel free to head over to ARCI and see what you can learn now or in the next few days and in the days to come. Here is the link: Get Resources. This knowledge will curb the spread of disease and reduce anxiety.
Remember, we are in this together although separately-
In short, we need to come together by NOT coming together, but do our best to stay connected this way.
One more thing:
I hope to continue my small contribution in strengthening our community through sharing of knowledge through this site that am putting together. I also hope that it will be a great source of inspiration and a center for invaluable resources for everyone.
We are working on ways to make the Community even better by adding more diverse resources and topics of mutual interest on this one place. This resource that I share and make available in this location is a good example of that. So, go over and Get Resources.
I pray that the ARCI become a place of enrichment and refreshment as well as a beacon of hope during this unique time.
Remember to enhance your skills and knowledge by reading our recommended books right here.
We’re all in this together,
