There is so much noise, so much talk of disagreement and strife. But if you pay attention, you can see so many people working to make things better. A few in big, splashy ways, but legions in small, quiet ways. So many people, sending a cheerful note, planting a bee-friendly plant, sewing masks, picking up trash, starting a book club, donating money. So many of us are trying to help, at least a little, and I am grateful for that.
