I miss the hustle and the bustle of living in a big city. I miss mingling human energy with other humans. The train platforms are quiet. The sidewalks are quiet. The scurry is limited to avoiding others on the street lest you be exposed to COVID-19.

The information is relentless. The news is non-stop. Too much of it is not good. What I’d give to see another state or another country right now.

“If you see something, say something” has been replaced with dire warnings of getting too close to our fellow citizens. We should all be in this together, doing our best to lift each other. But we’re too divided, led by division, ripping each other down.

This isn’t the way it’s suppose to be. None of this is proper. None of this is correct. We can do better.

We must.
