Amy Stewart’s new series One Day celebrates humans’ resilience, our capacity to endure adversity, and to come out the other side of a challenge stronger and more unified. Months after the pandemic began, we are still isolated from one another, wondering if our lives will ever return to “normal.” A year feels like a long time; our old lives seem distant and strange. At times, our society feels fractured, irreparable. But Stewart has seen how individuals heal. She knows that families and communities can come together after division. Throughout the pandemic, Stewart has observed large and small kindnesses among friends and strangers, businesses and governments. At moments of crisis, she remembers such kindness and remains confident that we will emerge from the pandemic armed with the knowledge and experience that will make everyone’s future smoother.
