The quest to understand the meaning of the “Stay-at-Home order has undauntingly not transferred without the threat of a fine or jailtime, unless of course you are originally from another country where you have experienced political or civil unrest or the Ebola virus. Before someone chimes in, and the lack of electricity, water, and fuel for your generator if you’re so fortunate. If not, hopefully, some ladies will pass by in the morning singing their song of their morning produce sale.
Through the years of living overseas, I came to appreciate the time someone took to mourn with a family on the same street, whom they had never really known anymore than to say Good Morning. This sense of community didn’t take a virus to make people believe, “we are all in the same boat, and no amount of money could change the fact that when unrest unveiled itself in any form, no one was left out.”
So, today I wonder, “is God trying to tell us something about the day-to-day anger we have towards one another, whether it is racism, sexism, or anything else that keeps us from being good to one another.” Whatever it is, we will forever feel the affects of this virus, hopefully it is a lesson in how we should move forward. “We can do better.”
“We can do better.”
