I’ve been thinking about the changes this time might bring

Maybe we learn that we don’t need so many things

Maybe we learn it’s important to make the things we need close by

Maybe we learn to take care of each other and our earth

Maybe we cook and garden more, and get out to experience nature

I hope we take to heart how important it is to have health care and a functioning government
It will if we can rid of despots like Trump, Putin DonaldsRump Mar 2020 #1
