This pandemic didn’t change anything about any of us.

It just raised the stakes for the impact of our actions.

Having chosen a career in a health field, I oftentimes forgetfully assume that others think the same way I do. We should want to be kind to one another.

We should want to listen to the opinions and values and thoughts of others in the context of science when it comes to making important decisions that may impact others. But that’s so painfully untrue, and all of that has come sharply into focus during the past week.
