A Prayer for these times!

Image may contain: 1 person, standing

May we who are merely inconvenienced,
remember those whose lives are at stake.
May we who have no risk factors,
remember those who are most vulnerable.
May we who have the luxury of working from home,
remember those who must choose between preserving their health or making the rent.
May we who have the flexibility of caring for our children when their schools close,
remember those who have no options.
May we who have to cancel our trips,
remember those who have no safe place to go.
May we who are losing our margin money in the tumult of the economic market,
remember those who have no margin at all.
May we who settle in for a quarantine at home,
remember those who have no home.
As fear grips our country, let us choose love.
During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other, let us find ways to be a loving embrace to our neighbors.
— Prayer for a Pandemic by Cameron Bellm

May the spirit of love and wisdom guide our actions. May we remember that we are all related. Ometeotl.
