Grief, Loss, and HOPE
As we approach the one year mark of the Covid-19 pandemic,
let us reflect on loss and isolation.
“The loss of a routine,
the loss of freedom to go out and do what we please,
the loss of being able to hug our loved ones—those are all major losses,
and they have to do with the relationship between ourselves and the changing world.
These losses are not the ones with sympathy cards.
What we need to do now is name these losses”.
