Thank you for finally getting here.
I think we can all agree 2020 has been a year best forgotten…. or at least agree it brought us all many more opportunities to show our humanity, compassion, kindness, humility, honor and understanding. Some people did that so much better than others.
Many inspired us to carry on, sharing unimaginable acts of love, kindness and dignity we should all hope to have when we desperately needed it.
Healthcare and frontline workers faced and continue to endure the brunt of the unknown with persistence and grace in spite of the willfully ignorant.
Delivery services were excoriated when the 2020 sharknado of events kept piling on the delays–pandemic shopping, snow storms, holiday shopping, the post office being DeJoyed…. (I’m still waiting for a Paul Stankard book from a Nov 23 order–sigh)
Some could only offer their petty and inherent smallness. Sadly, I can and do put almost all politicians in that group.
Conspiracy theorists just make me laugh. And worry for the gullible.
Fools selfishly claimed and continue to claim their Constitutional and religious rights are being violated — without ever considering their simple moral rights to be citizens of and for the world.
So what will it take to get through? How do we get through to the people who refuse to believe that short term adjusting for the good of others is in their own long term benefit as well?
These issues hurt my heart and frustrate me to no end–how and why the United States has the highest mortality and infection rates–when I know we can all be so much better than this…..
So, what are you doing to make 2021 better?
