I can’t remember a time in my life that I haven’t felt more globally connected.
With other humans.
Known and unknown.
Lives woven together by an invisible enemy.
Relentlessly wreaking havoc.
America locked down.
Indiscriminate against race; ethnicity; gender; religion; age; zip codes or bankrolls.
It’s in a look; a quick glance or lingering stare.
It’s in the sound of a voice; on the phone or in passing.
A tender text.
A tear cascading down a face.
A lump in our throats.
A full-blown cry.
Inspiring words shared.
Essential workers working.
People speak and seem nicer.
Realizing we aren’t that different…..after all!
Anxious; depressed; sad; fearful.
Flatten the curve.
Trying to connect, but, disconnected!
A virtual hug.
Letting folks know how much we care and love them.
All of us trying to get through this together!
Taking one second, one minute, one day at a time!
Praying for containment!
And, another kind of normal.
