Letter: Stop complaining about COVID-19 inconveniences, start showing love

To the Editor:

The Preamble to the U.S. Constitution of the United States reads:

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

Seven articles and 27 amendments are the laws by which we as Americans live. Our constitution has been a work in progress, so to speak, but as we have evolved as a people we do understand and appreciate the changes, such as “There is no freedom without responsibility.”

As a world and as a country, we are facing a virus we cannot see or touch. This virus has been deadly. Until a vaccine is developed to make the world safe, we stay home, self-distance and follow the science.

There is one other powerful tool that we can use that we cannot see or touch. It is love. Send love out to everyone and surround this virus with love until a vaccine is found. It is easy to complain; it is more difficult to love and work for justice.

As Joshua Knobe, a Yale experimental psychologist, answered when asked, in a multi-universe, what the most important thing for us to know is, he said, “Be kind.”

Once we have learned the lessons, let’s not forget them.
