And people stayed home

This poem has made the rounds, but it is worth another read and some reflection as we all grieve our collective loss of our former “normal”. 

I, for one, am hoping that the things I’ve been seeing continue. I’ve loved seeing the neighbors walking with their dogs and kids, children playing outside and riding their bikes, spending less time in the car, everyone seeming like they appreciate each other more, and friends from far away organizing virtual parties and happy hours. ❤️ Rev.
