We live in interesting times. For a few days, the pace of public events will likely (hopefully) slow. There will be opportunities to spend time with friends and family, to disconnect from the chaos. If you’re among those fortunate enough to have downtime this holiday season, I hope you’ll seize this opening to experience a measure of calm.
Hug someone. Take a breath. Express your best wishes to those you love. Cherish every moment of joy and peace this holiday may bring.
Chances are, what was bad last year will be worse in the weeks and months to come, but we made it this far. There are signs of hope and optimism amid the damage. Take this chance to gain strength and purpose for the road ahead, whatever awaits. Happy Holidays, my fellow orphans. Thanks for sharing this journey.
