Most of us are trying to avoid the phrase, “return to normal”. Even newscasters, pundits, leaders of all types are making awkward statements about “a partial, a semblance, a return to some normalcy….”
Part of this recognizes the mountain ranges of reality that now exist between the valleys of our ignorance.
Our collective awakening, our shared despair, guilt and confusion make a return to “normal” impossible.
These powerful forces and circumstances have brought us to this moment, to this place, and we can never go back.
