At my local post office here in Utah over the weekend, I spotted a new sign on the bulletin board.
I love its message, and it’s a timely reminder for residents because our state has “reopened” from the covid shutdowns.
Here’s the sign:
If the picture is hard to read, here’s the text:
As governors are trying to figure out how to ease back in to a new normal, please remember:
Some people don’t agree with the state opening… that’s okay. Be kind.
Some people are still planning to stay home… that’s okay. Be kind.
Some are still scared of getting the virus and a second wave happening… that’s okay. Be kind.
Some are sighing with relief to go back to work knowing they may not lose their business or their homes… that’s okay. Be kind.
Some are thankful they can finally have a surgery they have put off… that’s okay. Be kind.
Some will be able to attend interviews after weeks without a job… that’s okay. Be kind.
Some will wear masks for weeks… that’s okay. Be kind.
Some people will rush out to get the hair or nails done… that’s okay. Be kind.
The point is, everyone has different viewpoints/feelings and that’s okay. Be kind.
We each have a different story. If you need to stay home, stay home. But be kind.
If you need to go out, just respect others when in public and be kind!
Don’t judge fellow humans because you’re not in their story. We all are in different mental states than we were months ago. So, remember, be kind.
