“Let us remember how small our differences are in the face of this shared threat.”
“In the final analysis, we are not partisan combatants — we are human beings, equally vulnerable and equally wonderful in the sight of God. We rise or fall together and we are determined to rise. God bless you all.”
~George W. Bush~
I did not vote for former President Bush while he was in the White House, but I have much admiration and respect for his words and willingness to spread a message of unity, rather than division.
One hundred years from now, this pandemic will be in the history books as well as the constant change of political leaders. Politicians of today will not be there in 2120, but humanity will. What will our society be like? Unified or divided? At peace or at war? Can we make a difference?
The pain of isolation, joblessness, economic loss, anxiety and more is merely temporary compared to what greets us for the rest of our days and all of eternity.
I ask, my friends, that we continue to love and respect people, to be selfless and kind, to put others’ needs and health in front of our own. To reach out to others in a show of empathy and emotional support.
And be a voice for human solidarity.
