☕️ Shut it all down - Morning Brew is STILL OPEN ONLINE!!!
It's been a rough week for everyone, but hey, at least it isn't Friday the—oh wait.
In all seriousness, we found comfort in these words from Rabbi Yosef Kanefsky as we head into the weekend:
- "Every hand that we don't shake must become a phone call that we place."
- "Every embrace that we avoid must become a verbal expression of warmth and concern."
- "Every inch and every foot that we physically place between ourselves and another, must become a thought as to how we might be of help to that other, should the need arise."

Delays/cancellations/suspensions of some of the biggest events and venues in the U.S. came fast and furious yesterday.

PGA Tour: Suspended
Boston Marathon: Postponed to autumn

E3 (huge videogame expo): Canceled
Disney theme parks: Closed
Many iconic NYC cultural institutions, including the Met and Carnegie Hall: Closed
Fast and Furious 9: Postponed to April 2021
