  5. I read the whole article, with all the stories. This is the most stunning thing I’ve read in this pandemic. The resilience and capacity to find meaning in the midst of suffering and change is a hopeful sign. And it’s helped me look at my own life’s trajectory, given that I went through (successful, in the end) cancer treatment all winter. Yes, we are all changed.
