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.
