Giving Thanks

It is said that crisis brings opportunity, and the COVID tragedy has given many people the opportunity to do better.

The suffering from COVID preferentially hit our society’s most vulnerable people, and we know we need to do more to protect them. We better understand now too the criticality of essential workers in so many areas of our life and the necessity that they all get paid a living wage with benefits. Our priorities have been reset as we more deeply grasp the essential nature of family, friends and our physical, emotional and spiritual health.

We are grateful for this opportunity to do better. We all are activists now.
