#AloneTogether We Said Go Travel News May 2020


May News 2020 with We Said Go Travel:

This is my third #AloneTogether COVID-19 newsletter. I never imagined it would last more than the first two weeks but it is not over yet. At Shabbat Services on Facebook Live for Stephen Wise Temple, Rabbi Woznica said, “We are all in the same storm but we are not all in the same boat.” We are concerned about our own health and that of our family members, people who have lost jobs or might soon and financial health for ourselves, community and country. I hope you and your loved ones are safe and staying healthy of mind, body and spirit.

This COVID-19 time has reminded us all that life is unpredictable and uncertain. It always has been.
