On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a global pandemic. Today, more than 2.62 million people have died from COVID.
For me, the symbol for the pandemic is lines.
Lines for testing
Lines for food
Lines for the unemployed
Lines for vaccine reservations
Lines for shots
Sadly, there are also lines of tears streaming down the cheeks of those who lost loved ones, who are missing family, who are lonely.
My hope is that there will soon be lines in front of theaters, sporting events, museums. I hope to see tears of joy lining the faces of many as they reunite with loved ones and resume the normalcy of their lives.
Affirmation: This pandemic taught me patience and empathy for those who have lost so much.
Coaching questions: What symbol will you use for the pandemic? What has this year meant to you and yours?

A very well written book that tugs at your heart. Since I grew up in the same midwestern town I identified with much that the author so brilliantly described. I will pass this book on to my daughter.

Thank you so much, Sandy. If you bought the book on Amazon, I’d love to have you put these words into a review and/or give a star review. I’m so glad it was meaningful to you and brought up good memories of G.I.
