No place for shootings like Boulder and Atlanta

A constant refrain in the news these days is the wish to “return to normal,” or questions to doctors or leaders about “when are we are going to return to normal?” Underlying this desire for the “normal” is to return to the way things were before COVID-19, a longing for the way things were before March 2020.   

I for one do not want to return to “normal.” I don’t long for the way things were before the coronavirus disrupted all our lives in some pretty profound ways. Beyond that, this constant discussion of a return to normal really misses the opportunity to honor all the sacrifices that have been made in the past year as well as all the losses we have suffered. In order to give meaning to the sacrifice and make it more than just pain, loss and struggle, it must have purpose. This meaning and purpose is found in change and finding a new way of being in this world.
