Wow. Thanks to wretched COVID19, this is a very changed July 4th.
A wonderful parade that brought immense joy to me as a child and as an adult, has been canceled.
The wondrous display of fireworks has been called off.
Tanglewood, the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, has canceled all concerts on the sprawling green lawns under the stars.
Everything has changed.
Everything has been silenced because of COVID19.
But we can feel love within our hearts.
We can celebrate quietly and know that better days are coming.
Keep safe. Wear masks. Sanitize your hands.
God bless each of you this Fourth of July and all the days that follow.
Know that God is with us.
WHAT ARE YOU DOING THIS HOLIDAY?
