From A Handbook for Kindness and Hope

Crisis brings us face to face with things important.

It might be a struggle with a life threatening illness.

It might be having someone you love die.

It might be the end of an important love relationship or the loss of your livelihood.

It might be examining the state of the world but it is in these crisis moments when
we can see clearly.

For some, that certain perspective is momentary, for others, it never goes away.

For many their new understanding looks like this,

We need to treat each other with more concern and we need as individuals and a
species to consider things differently.
