Storms & Pandemics

March 17, 2020

We face a challenging and difficult time ahead. Unlike a category five hurricane our houses, trees, and gardens will survive, but what about our homes and our community? This time there are no evacuation routes, no higher grounds, no storm clouds. We will need to pull together (minimize social distance) even as we stay apart (maximize physical distance). And we will need to do this with wisdom, generosity, and compassion; a deep and wide sense of community like that which follows a devastating tornado. But unlike after a hurricane or tornado, there will be no clear moment when we know it is safe for recovery to begin. We will get through this, but we need to be at our best.
