"I Continue to Be Blown Away..."
* * * * *
I'm not sure how else to say it. With each passing day life does seem to get a bit scarier. Dreary news from Washington, Chicago, and all around the world arrives that is difficult to dissect - let alone digest. Coronavirus / Covid - 19 is shaping up to be a generationally defining moment, maybe not unlike the Great Depression.
Yet do you know what really blows me away? It's that as bad as things are - there's so much that is good and positive to be found in how people are responding to the challenges they face.
Compassion. Courage. Kindness. Flowing consistently from so many during this time. Like the Nyland's and all the families who enthusiastically have purchased Face Shield kits from the Randolphs and glued them together - we're probably talking 1000's of Face Shields. In a day or two, another load will go down to Lurie Children's Hospital, and to other places of need in the community. As WGN morning man Wally Phillips used to say, "people helping people."
