Lindsey: When The Battle With Coronavirus Is Over

This article originally appeared on the blog of Heretic, the magazine of We Are Libertarians.

Author Laura Kelly Fanucci recently wrote a beautiful piece of prose titled When The Battle With Coronavirus Is Over.

When this is over, may we never again take for granted:

A Handshake With A Stranger
Full Shelves At The Store
Conversations With Neighbors
A Crowded Theatre
Friday Night Out
The Taste Of Communion
A Routine Checkup
The School Rush Each Morning
Coffee With A Friend
The Stadium Roaring
Each Deep Breath
A Boring Tuesday
Life Itself

When this ends, may we find that we have become more like the people we wanted to be, we were called to be, we hoped to be, and may we stay that way — better for each other because of that worst.

You can also listen to this here, read by Rebecca Carrell on the KCBI Mornings With Rebecca & Burns radio show.
