Resilience and Renewal on Trial

Yesterday along Hines Drive, a roadway following the Rouge River’s course through suburban Detroit,   the grass was a brilliant green beneath an amiable sun.  Walkers and bikers frequented the paths, though we were  keeping a safe distance, while various harbingers of Spring chirped or trilled or quacked from the nearby wetlands.  Sorely tried at present, the faith of renewal remains alive.

A prayer for our beleaguered health care workers in the Detroit area, as they wage the battle on behalf of us all.  This cup, too, shall pass from you; we can only hope soon.
