CFP News is a weekly roundup of the best stories on how people collaborate and create social impact in communities. An online version is here.

We're exasperated, tired, anxious, and stressed. You can glimpse the light at the end of the tunnel but still can't touch it. Many of us are seeing new restrictions applied in our cities as infections rise.

2021 is better than last year. For example, Toronto's mayor said that High Park and the Cherry Blossoms, unlike last year, will remain open this spring for pedestrians and cyclists. He recognizes everyone needs nature and exercise. To see a live cam of the Cherry Blossoms, click here.

This Serenity Prayer by Reinhold Niebuhr is fitting:

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,

the courage to change the things I can,

and the wisdom to know the difference.

While this year has been difficult, we've seen examples of courageous people change things in their community. In this issue, we cover how people tackle food insecurity, equality, social justice, education and awareness, resilience, and innovation. We also recognize two powerful short films that received nominations for the 2021 Oscars, happening on April 25th at 8 pm Eastern.

Stay safe. Stay sane. Wear a mask. We're so close.
