I am one of those people that took precautions during pandemic. I followed the advice from the scientists. Yet I have to consider the ramifications of shutting down our schools and businesses. I see damaged relationship and less happy people. Rudeness and self-centeredness that stems from depression. Make it a given that it had these … Continue reading What Part of the Pandemic Made Us Worse
Kindness is Power
Kindness is powerful. Kindness is always the answer. Yet, there are opposing beliefs on this. For example, You're facilitating the problem if you give an animal or a person ample food supply.
