In a year that has challenged conventional wisdom and the very bedrocks of our global society, it’s becoming de rigueur to mourn life before March 2020 and think of all the negative ways in which things have changed. While this certainly is grounded in the current reality of case spikes in many corners of the world and a serious case of COVID fatigue, it’s my view that we have an opportunity to reset and seize a victory from the jaws of defeat.
Let’s reflect on some good things. We’ve rallied as a country to keep more citizens alive than the dire predictions of 2020. (Remember the ventilator count per state?) The supply chain caught up with the need for PPE. And we managed to get vaccines released faster than anyone thought possible.
While there have been terrible losses on so many levels, we’ve also come together in new and different ways that can help us emerge better than before.
All of those new and different ways leads me to my requests for a few calls to “betterment:”
Maybe this is a saccharin-sweet idea and overly optimistic, but I like to think this is the converse of the ridiculously challenging time we’re still enduring, and reflects my hope in humanity recognizing that we can learn from this and change for the better. So how about we all agree to turn down the volume on the divisive rhetoric, mute the apps that feed the “us vs. them” mentality and get back to talking to each other. We might even find common ground.
Your reward for scrolling all the way to the end is this precious cat. Yes! (Fist bump.)
