I can’t help myself. Whenever I find myself in times that strain the character of human kind, I default to one profound statement – “Be excellent to each other.” Under stress, it can be a challenge. Now, for those of you who aren’t familiar with this phrase, it was one of the take-away lessons teed up by the comedy classic, “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure.” I know the movie is a bit hokey. It’s a totally goofy comedy, but man, they nailed it. Please honor our first responders, healthcare providers, and others who put themselves on the front-line as we cope with COVID-19. Stay home as much as possible. Let’s do our best to be respectful and kind. In a nutshell, please be excellent to each other.
