Why Does It Matter That I Feel I Can Go To Work Without Make-Up During The COVID-19 Pandemic?
Why does it matter that I feel I can now go into work without make-up?
Well, today, 79-year-old Margaret-Barbara called into my radio talk show. It took her a few tries, because she says she's "handicapped" and has "tremors." Dialling is difficult.
"I need help. I don't know what I need," she says.
She has beaten cancer THREE times. Still, this is THE hardest thing she's ever had to go through.
She doesn't have anyone taking care of her.
Within minutes, I had too many people offering their help.
Another woman calls in. She's taking care of her 100-year-old mother. She needs a very specific bandage for an ailment on her foot.
Within 60-seconds, I have a medical professional offering his help.
A man who suddenly finds himself without money or hope reaches out.
A few minutes later, I have people reaching out to him. And these are but A FEW of THE MANY people we were able to find help through a radio talk show.
So why does it matter that I went into work without make-up?
It doesn't matter.
How you look DOES NOT affect your ability to help people and do good. Rather how you look at the others, makes all of the difference in the world.
My hope is people will start looking at each other with more compassion.
Our new reality shows me my hope is coming true.
Stay safe, you beautiful creature, you.
