Watching

This pandemic is surely an extraordinary time to live through: and to watch. I’m finding my usual appetite for information severely blunted. It is hard to look at many of the images on TV. It is difficult to see film, for example, of lines of ambulances in Moscow; of emails from friends who have elderly family who have died; of updates from people we care about who have the virus or who’s work puts them and their families at risk. It is all testing our human ingenuity and resources to the full. People sometimes say: ‘the test of a civilization is how we treat the poorest and the most-disadvantaged.” The idea of relating to each other with respect, care and even compassion is proving to be a very high-aim indeed.
