Today I heard a beautiful poem that struck me. May it bring you the same light, and a sense of unity. It is written by Laura Kelly Fanucci, and was found on a street corner of North-West Portland. 

 

 

When This is Over:

 

When this is over,

May we never again take for granted 

 

A handshake with a stranger

Full shelves at the store 

Conversations with neighbors 

A crowded theatre 

Friday night out

The taste of communion 

A routine checkup

The school rush each morning

Coffee with a friend 

The stadium roaring 

Each deep breath 

A boring Tuesday

Life itself. 

 

When this ends, may we find that we have become

More like the people we wanted to be 

We were called to be

We hoped to be

And may we stay that way, 

Better for each other because of the worst.
