Resilience Lessons from Anchovies


When this video came across my Facebook feed, I was mesmerized. Such beautiful images, but an even more powerful message. Our reading of Onward has shown that our resilience is cultivated when we build community.

The Monterey Bay Aquarium’s video shows that to avoid predators, anchovies swim in schools of thousands. With all those moving targets, it’s hard for a predator to focus on just one. Ahhhh, the power of community for survival! Be like the anchovies.
