This virus is horrible. The effects that it has had on our hospital system, on those who have become ill and died, on families, on businesses, on workers is immense. No one has been immune from it and we will be paying for the virus' effects for years. Like many, I hope life will get back to "normal". I pray though, that the new normal will be better. I pray it will be a place where all people are treated equally not just some. I pray that governments will truly examine what their priorities should be and that spending on social expenses will be considered not a luxury but a necessity. I pray that we take a closer look at how our actions impact this planet. Life was ok for some before COVID and difficult for all of us during COVID. May we strive to make life good for all after COVID. I don't want life to be "normal" again. I want it to be even better than normal. Blessings.
