As we have started on our most recent unwanted journey, many people have asked what they can do to help. I keep saying that we don’t know what people can do yet — it is all too new, and we are still getting details and understanding what this all means.
But then we talked about it more, and we came to some conclusions about what people can do to help. They can do the same things that we always suggest in terms of “Do a Sam.” Say hello. Make eye contact. Listen. Don’t pretend it isn’t happening. Ask us how we are. Hug us. Those things help — they help a lot.
Thinking more about it, those still are the things that all of us can do for anyone, not just those who you know are struggling.
Thank you all for your support — it matters!
