Butterflies with paper thin wings flutter from flower to flower. Their delicate beauty on display for all to see. How amazing is it that a creature so fine, must struggle with tremendous strength, to break free from the cage it created?
They are an illustration of the balance between strength and fragility in nature. The human struggle is no less inspiring. Both our bodies and our spirits experience moments of intense pain and moments of great joy. Life is a bittersweet journey.
During these dark days we see acts of kindness and courage that inspire all of us to be better. Through the death and despair there is still hope. Hope for a time when Covid-19 is vanquished and we no longer fear an invisible enemy.
Like the butterfly we struggle now with the hope that one day soon we will be set free to spread our wings. Freedom is coming and what a day that will be!
