How many of these can one opportunistic virus steal from us?
As if it didn’t even care.
As if they don’t really matter.
We’ll reclaim them.
(Most of them. Maybe more. Maybe different)
When the time is right.
(Change will emerge.)

The virus can not steal your voice or your creativity, or your love and compassion. Thank you for speaking in words what many of us feel but cannot articulate.
