Recently I viewed a social distancing presentation of one of my favorite Beatles songs – "Let It Be." As the third verse says,
“And when the night is cloudy, there is still a light that shines on me
Shine on ‘till tomorrow, let it be
I wake up to the sound of music, Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking Words of wisdom let it be”
I’m thankful to know that social distancing and the Coronavirus Pandemic will end and the light will shine on us tomorrow!
