Until the great mass of the people shall be filled with a sense of responsibility for each other's welfare, social justice can never be attained.

Since the coronavirus lockdown, there has been an uptick in bias against blacks,  Asians, Jews, and Latinos. Wonder who is losing it?

What does the second amendment have to do with coronavirus? I live a block from the hospital. During the first few weeks, ambulance sirens were a constant. The virus is real and needs to be taken seriously. A number of people in my neighborhood have died.

I would be out practically every day before corona. This cramps my style but this isn't going to last forever. I have been calm about the whole situation. The fog will lift one day.

Life will be different, for sure. I have learned some new skills and so have a number of my friends. Even in crisis one can be productive. The small things mean more than you know. Whatever joys there are I just take in the moment and enjoy it

What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you.

I see more people outside in recent days.  More businesses are open also. It's still pretty much a lockdown but people are venturing out.

Crises are part of life. Everybody has to face them, and it doesn't make any difference what the crisis is.

Some people have the notion that life will return to normal. With so many people unemployed, businesses closing, and essential services curtailed, I don't see how that is possible. I don't trust much of anything the government and politicians say.  

Yesterday, some workers at places like Amazon and Whole Foods went on strike. All these stimulus packages will be going to the usual suspects-never the working class. Will this be the beginning of a people's revolution? The LGBTQ+ community is now the targets of bigots, being blamed for the coronavirus pandemic. As you can see, some people's stupidity is coming out. 

Make no mistake the world will be different. For better? Or worse? only we the people will decide. I'm through with the politicians and so-called experts. They are all liars, cutthroats, sociopaths, psychopaths, who are married to the corporations and only out for themselves. It is time for us to stand up and speak out. Protest. Work on the things that need changing. Only we can make life better.

Accept the challenges so that you can feel the exhilaration of victory.
