PERSON!

There is a wonderful forested area at the end of our street.  Today I was walking through it, enjoying the bright sun shining through the tall evergreens.  Lost in my thoughts, I was startled when a young man walking towards me, yelled, “PERSON!” Immediately, three people following him, jumped off the path into the forested undergrowth beside the path.  

 

As I recovered from being startled, I began to ponder.  This man was clearly fearful and wanting to practice appropriate social distancing for himself and his companions.  However, how wonderful would it be, when COVID 19 is over, that we actually stop and see each person we pass, with so much enthusiasm that we yell, “Person!” (to ourselves).

 

Who needs to be seen in your life?
