Prior to March of this year, could you have imagined wearing a mask and standing in line to enter the grocery store or our society without sports? Uncertainty, market volatility, and rising unemployment have become a new “normal” in recent months along with the day-to-day disruptions. In February, the Dow Jones Industrial Average hit an all-time high of 29,348 and four weeks later closed at 18,491 – a decline of 37 percent. It has been unprecedented to see the world turned upside down with very little warning!
