Working in emergency departments in Saskatoon, registered nurse Carol Scrivener knows firsthand how difficult the COVID-19 pandemic has been. Although she acknowledges there are “dark days ahead,” Scrivener (who, in her spare time, writes songs and performs as Carolina Jack) says she keeps going back to the idea that people don’t know how strong they are until it’s the only choice they have. And she calls the fact that we now have vaccines for the virus “one of the most amazing scientific feats I’ve witnessed in my lifetime.”

Drawing on the good news of vaccines and the sacrifices made by those around her for inspiration, Scrivener wrote and recorded an uplifting song titled “We’re Gonna Be Okay” as a way to lift hearts and spirits during the cold January days. You can listen to it below.
