Hi. I’m in beautiful nature in upstate New York. Lucky to have a house here, surrounded by trees. The sun is shining and the trees have their red buds out. It all looks golden.
Yesterday I volunteered and I packaged and delivered food to people who aren’t as lucky as I am. And, yeah, every, package that I arranged, went to somebody who was waiting for it and who was possibly hungry. Somebody who was already struggling, possibly even before Covid came, and waiting for this meal to arrive to fill a hungry belly.
And, in my next part of the shift, I actually delivered some of the meals to the people who were waiting for them. And, it broke my heart to see how many people were, like, living in really poor, broken down conditions and accepting this important thing. And that just reminded me that people are in very different situations in this America that we live in. And we, the ones who are luckier or the ones who’ve ended up in a better spot, need to make sure that nobody gets left behind.
And this is a time for us to help one another and be there for one another. And come together. And, also a time to reflect on how we are living our lives. And maybe this is an amazing opportunity for us to return to life better. Yeah.
