On Friday during our morning walk through the neighborhood, we saw an elderly woman dragging her recycle bin from the curb to her house. On a slight slope, cane in one hand to steady herself, she was struggling. A year ago, I would not have hesitated to dash across the street and offer help. Someone else might not have hesitated even on Friday. But all I could do was watch with concern from across the street.
This is one of many losses from the pandemic. Not to mention the 2 million now dead worldwide.
