A Returning Project:  IOKDS Stands Together—Apart Challenge

Due to a wide request for a time extension on this challenge, we are reintroducing it!

The Challenge:

Why?  Since there is no biological vaccine for Covid-19, the behavioral vaccine of social distancing/isolation is needed.  As important as social distancing is to slow the pandemic, a side effect can be emotional risk for personal depression.
Who?  Every IOKDS member accepts the challenge of participation.  IOKDS has 150 adult Circles in North America.
How?  IOKDS initiates tele-emotional health of body, mind, and spirit beginning today.
Where?  In your home.

Anderson Parkway Cathedral Square in South Burlington, VT. This was when I first encountered and personally learned about the struggles quadriplegic and paraplegic people have to go through everyday.
