or have become your best friend.

While the meek hide hoping more than ever no one notices them.

Politics divides the families

as responses to the disease varies.

Deaths take on new meaning

or numb those who have to deal with too many of them.

Good news is rare

and given special status since people are grieving.

Small insults blossom into rages.

Small gifts of kindness send us into tears.

Society’s ills are amplified.

Mental traumas are now being focused on

as a global scene now needs to deal with it.

Individuals are lost and found.

I hope everyone is all right

knowing that most are struggling.
