My cell phone went on the fritz a few days ago...very irritating to be sure, but a minor inconvenience I can deal with. In the scope of things, it's just another bump in the road in these days of modern technology. It'll take a few days to get fixed. Somehow, I'll get by.
I usually don't get too serious about things...I find the humor in most situations, and that helps to lighten the load.
But these days it's hard to avoid getting serious at times.
Covid 19 has killed over 143,000 Americans so far. The news is startling and grim every day. A lot of families are grieving and they are continually reminded of their loss every time they turn on the news.
A few days ago I heard from an old friend about her brother who died back in April. She sent me a little joke on my voicemail that her brother used to like to tell and sent another email about the Covid 19 Victim Honor Pin project she's doing to honor her brother Bill.
People wonder "what can I do about the virus?". Honor the victims...and hold their families in your heart and in your arms, and never forget those who have died.
It's the least we can do.
