I just heard that expression at the end of our local newscast – and I like it.
Just as we are being told not to gather socially even with friends – just as our schools have closed, our weekly activities canceled, large group gatherings not allowed – the words, Corona Kindness stuck with me.
Perhaps because that may be what gets us all through.
I guess when we think of kindness, we think of simple acts of thoughtfulness, of sharing, availability, patience, and love.
As parents, we are being called on to do overtime during this very uncertain and stressful time in our city and our country.
Before us lies a challenge for all of us- facing many unknowns- caring for ourselves and each other, checking on our friends and neighbors, and drawing our children close.
And by these very acts, Corona kindness will thrive .
But I know already what many of you are thinking – help!
And so I offer also Corona Simplicity and the trust that this imposed simplicity will offer us all the clarity, the freedom, the opportunity to face these uncertain weeks ahead with a brave recharged commitment to “be” – simply, kindly, boldly, and safely.
