The news has been overwhelming these last few months especially, and then this week happened!! My oh my, it’s intense in the world right now, but if there is one thing that gives me hope, it’s humanity standing together and fighting for real change, because change is overdue.
I too, will always fight for a world where all people – regardless of race, religion, culture, sexuality, or anything else that makes them different – have the right to dignity, equality and opportunity. That is a world I want to see forming out the other end of this crisis.
Shall we do it together? Will you speak up and demand we do better as a species – for all of humanity and for all life on planet earth?
As always, I’m sharing a selection of articles and videos I’ve been reading/watching, in the hope it helps you navigate this Infodemic. Here it is, without opinion. Scan through and select one or read them all! Sometimes just reading the headlines can give you the context of this time.

PS: sharing this again – a tip for dealing with an Infodemic
One tip I want to give everyone to deal with the enormous amount of information circulating. Read/watch with the lens of history over the top of what you’re consuming. I know it all can feel incredibly overwhelming, but putting this lens on top of it, helps to determine what really matters.
Therefore, anything you take on board, ask yourself – will this be part of the story when we reflect back on this time in the future? Sometimes just doing this helps to identify the information that really matters. The day-to-day news is not all going to make it into the cut of our future reflections.
This approach helps you to not get so caught up in every piece of information doing the rounds. We need to focus on what is most important, because, there is a LOT of distraction from the core truth today. I hope this tip is useful.
