Are You Okay?•

2020 has been humbling in so many ways. I can't say that Meghan Markle usually gets me thinking. But, humbled again. I read her article in the NYT , titled, The Losses We Share and cried. Why?
"Loss and pain have plagued every one of us in 2020, in moments both fraught and debilitating."
- Our business has dropped 90%. And we are OK.
- One of the diners was born with the umbilical cord around their neck, 3 times, they got a 1 on their first Apgar. (I was there, they had just exited my body.) They are OK.
- Another of of those children was hospitalized with meningitis at 6 weeks. They are OK.
- Another one of those children was born with crack in their system and remembers the mac and cheese that the police gave them when they were 4 and were removed from the motel room where they had been for days without food. They are OK.
