We were out walking our dog in between raindrops today, and we came across the Little Free Library stand shown above, one of a couple in our neighborhood.
But as you can see, this one doesn’t just have books. It has something that is in limited supply, with seemingly unlimited demand. For someone to sacrifice their toilet paper to a complete stranger (or a neighbor, who knows), speaks volumes about what people are doing to help each other during these trying times.
Such wonderful gestures are taking place all around the world, sometimes on a much bigger scale. This past Thursday at 8:00 pm, residents of the UK gave a big applause (from front doors, garden, balcony, windows, living rooms, etc) to show all nurses, doctors, GPs and carers our appreciation for their ongoing hard work and fight against the virus. The event was billed as Clap for Carers.
I’m sure most of us have seen a video or two of all the music that people have created and shared during the covid-19 pandemic.
When I see things like this, I am confident that we will come out of this crisis stronger, kinder, united, and more caring.
The song below, inspired by a post from Jill Dennison, says it so well.
