From the Founder:
Welcome to Edition No. 7 of Just a Moment in Now.
Time for significant, genuine change. In our previous issue, I wrote...
We are not alone, however, in this isolation. We are collectively fighting simultaneously as an entire planet.
The fight is against racism now. No more pausing. Now, already.
Summer is here. Coronavirus is still out there. The spread of Covid-19 is currently on the rise in many states here in the United States and in other parts of the world as we patiently or impatiently try to reopen society. But we have an even bigger force to tackle which started long before any 21st century pandemic.
I think about what my daughter and all children are facing ahead of them. This time in their lives will be marked with intense stories, historical events and overdue drastic change for social justice and humanity.
I am hopeful that outrage will lead to long term positive policy making for a less discriminating and more accepting community. We can find some peace after chaos. Love over hate.
Let's move forward, one day at a time. While paying attention, participating in whatever moves us so we can help move others, remembering to find the moments that matter - be here, now.
More than ever, many of us are finding ways to see loved ones especially now that there's more time spent at home and longing for personal connection with stay-at-home measures back in place. Whatever the means if possible, however, wherever, we are grateful for those simple moments of bonding. And if lucky enough to have a bubble to isolate with like I did with family one summer birthday weekend, enjoy celebrating togetherness all while we push for racial equality, fairness and amity.
Please continue to stay safe and take care of yourselves and others.
All the best,
Two More Minutes, Inc.
