I pulled out my sewing machine and started making masks in March (I don’t know how many – I stopped counting after 50). Joining a group of community-minded artists/activists has been one of the better things to come out of this. It’s nowhere near enough, though. Power reveals. Collectively, we have the power to stop the spread of a dangerous virus and protect our communities, especially the most vulnerable. Collectively, we aren’t doing it. We don’t want to. We don’t love each other enough. During this pandemic I’ve been thinking a lot about Jesus, that radical young Jewish rabbi who spoke about the power of love. Two thousand years later it’s still a radical idea. I live in a community where we talk about family and community and coming together in love. We talk about Jesus a lot. Cases are spiking and the virus is spreading out of control. We’re good at talking. We aren’t good at loving each other.”
