Thank you, Friend Donna, for this thoughtful, introspective, and important piece.
I will look more closely, make my self-assessment, and meditate on the results.
Friends, this is more than a one-time exercise. These questions don’t only apply to events of 2020. If we all took the time and space to query like this regularly, of ourselves and one another, with honesty, transparency, and integrity, think of the possibilities!
Peace and light to all.

Let’s take a few moments to think about the classes we’ve all been enrolled in, and how capably we’ve faced the tests they’ve put before us.
