The Blessings of Non-Essential Services
This piece was published at Crisis Magazine. The introduction follows:
At the beginning of this month, I was on a short bike ride, during which I came upon a T intersection that I was to travel straight through. At the intersection, a Jeep pulled out in front of me to make a left turn. The vehicle hit me, causing me to break two bones in my right arm and one in my left wrist. My body was covered with bruises, and I was left with a concussion. In an instant, the next few months of my life would be reshaped.
Even after such a trial it amazes me that you have the fortitude and mind to gather such succinct thoughts together. You are truly a blessing- a light in time of darkness speaking the truth. God bless you and may you manifest complete healing from your injuries
Sarah, So glad that you were properly cared for and are hopefully on the mend. Your words on essential services are spot on and I hope we have learned from this past experience.
