Have hope

Everything is in flux. The future is unclear, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have hope.

Yes, a virus is ravaging our world, our countries, our neighborhoods, our lives. Fear is everywhere.

Last week, I saw a woman open the door with one hand and the other one looked like it was cupping something small like a baby hamster. And, when she crossed the threshold, she put her hands together and started to rub them. That’s when I realized she had hand sanitizer with her cupped hand.

Our world is changing. We now have to distrust everything we touch, thinking that it might be infected.

The world has changed. And we have no idea where it’s going.

But you can have hope.

You can know that the sun will rise again. You will feel the breeze on your cheek, watch the buds blossom, smell the sweet spring air. Summer is coming.

You don’t need to live in fear, believe the worst. You can still see that things can get better, will get better.

Humanity will learn. Humanity will grow.

So will you.
