More than possibly any other time in our lives, there is so much to reflect on right now.
This year we have had the losses of the past several months at the hands of Covid19 and the incredible sacrifices all of the essential service providers have made in caregiving & battling this virus.
We’ve had the wide sweeping closure (both temporary and possibly more permanent) of businesses in countless communities across the country.
Our collective lives have been turned upside down—some more than others—and the impacts have been widespread. We continue to navigate a very unfamiliar landscape.
Now we’ve had the most recent events of this past week and there are no words to adequately address or characterize it but it must be solved and corrected.
We will re-evaluate and re-calibrate. We will find solutions. We will seek justice.
Not only has it been inspiring to bear witness to the heroics of all the essential service providers but the day to day, neighborhood to neighborhood, person to person compassion demonstrated throughout this multi- faceted, ongoing crisis. It’s an incredibly bizarre dichotomy of sorts.
Now, more than ever, we’ll be reflecting on all those who have endured pain, disillusionment and—let’s just say it—injustice and how we can do better.
