Some people say one thing America lacks in this crisis is perspective. Everyone thinks about the here and now, and many people don’t think about the consequences of their actions.
America is in a time warp. It’s a crisis brought on by the pandemic and the shutdown. Days spent shut indoors might feel long but add up to very little in hindsight.
America was unprepared for our current crises — both the pandemic and the economic crisis. Being unprepared has led to a loss of purpose for many Americans.
America has a crisis of limiting beliefs right now. Half the country considers themselves to be victims.
America is in a crisis of self-care. People have been so worried about loved ones, that they let themselves put on weight or put off exercise.
America is in a crisis of creativity. People in the arts have had their lives upended as live performances have been suspended.
