Inspiration is contagious, too.
The coronavirus pandemic has brought an outpouring of messages from stranger to stranger — in windows, on front doors, across walls, and colored onto driveways and sidewalks.

Some messages offer encouragement: “Strong Together.” “Always Look at the Bright Side of Life.”
Others are spiritual: “Have Faith.” “Jesus Loves You Always.”
Some offer humor: “United We Stand — 6 Feet Apart.” “Send Toilet Paper!”
And there are rainbows. So many rainbows.
Here are some inspirational messages shared around the world:
