There comes a point in your life, when you realize
that turning the page is the best feeling in the world
because there is so much more to the book
than the page you were stuck on...
Everywhere and everyone, people are getting tired
of lockdown. Here in Florida reopening is starting in the
form of beaches and parks for now. Social distancing
is still in effect, and supposedly it will continue
for a while even when restrictions are lifted.
Yesterday over 100 people gathered in downtown
Orlando holding signs and chanting a call to reopen
the state during the COVID-19 pandemic. Florida
does not have the best track record for getting
things done right, and this is not helping much.
In all of this pandemic, there are some beautiful
things happening in the world. Many bring hope
and joy to others just by their gestures. Take for
instance this praying hand in Hollywood, Florida.
A very inspiring sight for those who pass by.
Here in Fort Lauderdale we are still not out our of
lockdown. Fort Lauderdale's Mayor Dean Trantalis
said in a newsletter Wednesday that the city is looking
to have a phased reopening once the coronavirus
pandemic begins to slow down in the area.
Meanwhile here at home all is well. We are also getting
restless, but that does not mean we will be careless and
stupid. This is where people need to use their common
sense. Just because things are starting to reopen, does
not mean we will be part of the crowd. Not for now.
Wishing everyone a happy day. Let's remember, we
are in this together. Better days will soon be here.
Spend time thinking of what you want
rather than what you don't want...
