My wife and I qualify for being in the “vulnerable” section of the population, owing to our ages. Over the last two or three days, kind neighbors have come to our front door and have offered to run any errands we need in order to avoid us endangering ourselves in crowded food stores and long payment lines.
Isn’t that wonderful and heart-warning ? Community solidarity and caring for others!
The reality, in a large city, is that ownership of houses in our neighborhood changes rapidly, and we have lost track of exactly who some of our neighbors are. We do, of course, know the people who have come to our door, and bless them for that! Party politics are being ignored in the cause of common good. May this caring spirit continue and expand everywhere!
