For many of us, the world might seem a little bit scary and hopeless right about now now. We read or watch the news, hoping for something good, but often we end up hearing about things that fill us with anger, fear, or anxiety.
When the Covid-19 pandemic began to pick up steam here in the U.S., I think many were disheartened to see their neighbors hoarding necessary supplies. The young men who drove from state to state to corner the market on hand sanitizer with the sole purpose of selling it back to the public at six times the purchase price…painful. The husband and wife who rented a U-Haul and packed it full of toilet paper and wouldn’t sell any to people who were standing in line…yikes. THEN…like small beacons of love and light, stories of kindness and sacrifice began to emerge.
No matter how well we plan, how consistently we save, budget, and look after our finances there are some things we can’t see coming, like pandemics or severe weather events. I am so glad that kindness and human decency can bridge the gap when there are financial deficiencies. We’ll get through this by being kind to one another.
