Finding hope: Light during the darkness
“Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.” —Desmund Tutu
During the pandemic, I have seen a shift from selfishness to selflessness with many ordinary citizens who are living through extraordinary circumstances.
For example, there have been organizations that make cards for seniors in nursing homes who might experience a lack of visitors due to safety protocols.
Hope can be seen when parents start co-horts to assist with virtual school so that other parents can work. Additionally, grandparents inspire hope by teaching their grandchildren during the day so that their children may continue working long hours.
Teachers have also inspired hope, by their quick adaptation of new technology (i.e. Google classroom) to deliver insightful and inspiring lesson plans when schools may have virtual learning due to the pandemic.
Hope can be seen, even in these dark times, by witnessing the love and care of the human family towards its precious members.
