I am grateful for the friends who participated in the front porch project. The socially distant conversation and opportunity to help capture moments of togetherness were life-giving for me. Whereas each family has made sacrifices, each has also acknowledged how much the time spent together has meant to them as well. Slowing down isn’t all bad. Represented here are medical providers, people who have been laid off, teachers, administrators, pastors, students, parents, a foreign exchange student who felt it was safer here than returning home to Italy, canceled birthday parties, babies not welcomed by the masses that love them, essential employees, firefighters and lots of furry four-legged family members too. We truly are all in this together.
