patience, understanding, and flexibility during the past weeks as we worked tirelessly together to get everyone home quickly and safely.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone during this global health crisis.
No matter where you are in the world, we hope you can:
Stay strong, stay positive, and practice good mental and physical self-care.
We will emerge stronger together.
