Souschef gave me this....

He said he didn't write it, but I'm not so sure....


Hope for Now and the Future…

The trees have begun to bloom
I am surrounded by love
By staying at home I am letting the planet rest
My country has not been ruined by years of war
There are no bombs raining on our heads
I am not a prisoner held in solitary confinement, as millions are
I am not a refugee trying to escape with my life
I am not standing in line to fill a pot of water
I have access to fresh food and I am not starving
I have hot running water
I can reach my friends by phone and check in on them
My friends check in with me because they care about me
Any whiplash I feel about this strange turn of events in itself a sign of privilege
More than half the world would gladly trade their everyday problems for the modest inconveniences I am experiencing
I may have anxious dreams but I am dreaming them on a proper bed and I am not sleeping on the sidewalk
As long as I have my mind I can create, imagine, dream and not be lonely
When something tragic happens in another country next time, I will respond to it not with superiority, but humility and recognition
I will fight for positive changes and economically just policies
This global crisis connects me to people around the world and reminds me of our common humanity. This is a good thing

Thanks Dave, I've never wanted to be part of Facebook, but thanks for the info. I know in my heart that my insightful husband could have easily been the author...how very much I love that man, but now I know he wasn't actually the author, I wonder who it was?

I think it said Anonymous on the picture. I'd have find it if I saved it to be sure.

Whoever wrote it - it's certainly well done and so thoughtful and appropriate.
