It’s the contrast that gets me. I’m home safe, well fed, with good work to do, books to read, opera to watch, friends on the phone. What’s not to like? Why are my tears just a thought away?
Because the world outside my door is in crisis. People are suffering and dying, tired and frustrated. The world as we knew it is gone. In its place is chaos. Chaos, even with heroes trying hard to solve problems and heal the sick. Chaos that will make it difficult if not impossible for us to restore life as we knew it. I hope when we come through this there will be a better life somehow though we have no guarantee and no timetable.
