She quoted, “My heart goes out to a lot of people, who have lost jobs, have had salary cuts, and are left with very few savings. It has been very tough for them.

There are a lot of challenges one has to work through with patience. Right now, we all are dealing with issues like confusion, restlessness, feeling lost, loss of purpose, insecurity about the future.”
