TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) -- Thursday's Message of Hope is twofold - the first part comes from the Lafayette Theater and the second comes from Dr. Will Miller.
The Lafayette theater is currently sitting empty, closed for the outbreak. But there's a hopeful message left behind on the marquee. It reads "Lafayette - Strong, Kind and Resilient."
Dr. Will Miller's message is similar. on Wednesday, Doctor Will was cut short for time at the end of News 18's Coronavirus Conversation. Here's the rest of what he had to say:
"You know I was in the local super-market today keeping my distance, but I came across a fellow who was old. I mean really old. When I spoke to him he was in his nineties. You know what he said to me wean we were talking back and forth. He said if we could get through World War 2, we can get through this. I think that's a huge message to hold on to. Human beings are resilient, the community is resilient. Americans pull together. Think about what happened every time we've had a crisis whether it was 9/11 or WW2 we pulled together. That's what we're going to do right now. We're going to pull together. Temper your frustrations and connect with people who you know have good news, cheery news for you. Maybe it's your church friends maybe it's your minister. Do it."
