May we who are merely inconvenienced
Remember those whose lives are at stake.
May we who have no risk factors
Remember those who are vulnerable.
May we who have the luxury of working from home
Remember those who must choose between their health or
paying their rent.
May we who have the flexibility to care for our children when
their schools close
Remember those who have no options.
May we who have to cancel our trips
Remember those who have no safe place to go.
May we who are losing our margin money
in the tumult of the economic market
Remember those who have no margin at all.
May we who settle in for quarantine at home
Remember those who have no home.
As fear grips our country
Let us choose love.
During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms
around each other
Let us find ways to be the loving embrace of God to our neighbors.
