My husband goes out there every day to try and protect the lives of others. Years ago, he made an oath that bound his fate to those in need. Three years ago, I made an oath that bound my fate to his. Today I stand behind a front liner. This is my sacrifice. This is my burden. This is my path to amazing possibilities. Could it be yours to?
I am grateful. Grateful to all those who survived this virus and to all those who will survive it. Through their achieved immunity they are collectively increasing the protection of our communities, especially the most vulnerable of us. Grateful for each and every one of you. I know we each have a role to play, even if the meaning of it currently escapes us. I will do mine and thank you for doing yours. I trust it is essential and necessary and I refrain from judging it.
At the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter why we ended up in the unhealthy situation we find ourselves in. What matters is what we choose to do now, how we choose to live in this very moment. The present is a place of opportunity, a place where the new can find expression. If you can make one choice today, choose to be happy.
