Try kindness

I heard a story today that touched my heart. A couple that had been married for 60 years had the wife sick with COVID-19. She eventually passed away.

When the man returned home, 15 people from their local church had showed up outside his house at safe distances apart to sing hymns to him and express their condolences and support. The old man came out of his front door and listened and wept.

At certain points in human history, background, social status, race, political views and such ideologies fade into insignificance. All we are left with is the ability to touch another human being in a meaningful way, showing solidarity and support that we are all in this together.

At this time, let us not pass on the opportunity to show kindness to our fellow man in anyway that we can.
