Blessed are the Merciful

Healthcare workers hold up photos of themselves to show their COVID-19 patients what they look like without PPE at United Memorial Medical Center in Houston, Texas, December 28, 2020. 📷 @callaghan_ohare

This photo and everything about it weighs heavy on me. Why COVID-19 naysayers still exist is beyond my understanding. When I see images like this I am reminded of the depth and humanness of its realness.

To all my friends who work in any realm of the healthcare profession, and to all those who love you, I honor you and am grateful for you. I am sorry that we as a society haven’t done better by you. Thank you for rising above our selfishness and irrational ideologies and choosing to care for us anyway. You are the embodiment of grace and mercy in this merciless and graceless season.
