BE LOVE, COMPASSION, EMPATHY
Let me preface this message with something fundamental:
I know there is so much pain and sacrifice in the community.
There are those who are struggling with bills.
Those who are struggling with loneliness.
We all just want a hug to feel better about the world.
We Love each of you.
We feel Compassion towards you.
We are Empathetic -- your pain is our pain.
Today, I think it is helpful and nourishing to see some positive stories about love, charity, ingenuity and our shared humanity.
Like the power of a hug, which we need:
even when convention tells us
to be separated by protective measures
