Letter to the Editor: Treating one another with dignity in a time of crisis

Dear Editor,

Thinking out loud in this time of crisis.

Consider this. Beyond love there is purpose. A root so deep and intertwined that its presence cannot be denied. It cannot be ignored. It pulls us towards one another to become one. It unifies our souls for a greater purpose than ourselves. It manifests compassion, equality and togetherness. It demands acceptance of one another. It does not judge. It unifies. Gazing into its kaleidoscope of differences, we are drawn to the core purpose of its calling. Harmony. Peace. Understanding. Compassion. Togetherness. Let us embrace it and treat one another with dignity.
