Kat commented on "I'm Speaking to You from the Future" of COVID-19

Hi Madalyn Bates  - I didn't text a ton of people about it (10 people), but the people I did all responded and changed their behavior. They had been going out rather casually and some were even planning events. Once I sent this around, it definitely sobered people up. They canceled events, told me they were going to shelter in place and stopped thinking of this as mere inconvenience. One person who had previously said, "I'm going to keep go to the gym. I've got to live my life!" decided to not go after all. I was grateful because the video made my point without me having to get preachy or be perceived as overly cautious or paranoid.
