We’re in difficult times right now. With businesses shutting down, the coronavirus pandemic continuing to spread and many of our daily activities suspended, there is a real sense of panic and worry occurring across the country.
But Minnesota head coach P.J. Fleck is doing his best to keep people positive during this difficult time, and optimistic that, on the other side of this public health crisis, we’ll all come out stronger.
Fleck made an appearance on The Pat McAfee Show on Thursday to provide a positive outlook to the world.
“I think one of the big things is looking at it through the eyes of there are no problems in this world, only situations,” Fleck said. “Everybody, somehow, someway, in this world is being affected by this. Now, there are some people who are being affected more than others — whether that’s through the virus or through the financial part or their health, their family. But everybody is being affected by this. Everybody understands this. Everybody is going through it together.
Fleck also said that the previous sense of “normalcy” won’t be returning. However, it’s our responsibility to accept and improve the new normal.
“Who says the new norm can’t be better?” Fleck said. “Why can’t our world be better? Why can’t our nation be better? Why can’t we continue to grow?”
That’s a powerful message from Fleck, and one many would like to hear. Below is the full clip of Fleck talking with McAfee.
