Editor:

Has the pandemic taken away your faith in humanity and/or diminished your empathy? 

If so, COVID-19 has won.

I follow our health-care guidelines, but I do not live in fear. 

If you have tightened your bubble so much that you have stopped visiting friends or even phoning acquaintances who are home alone, COVID-19 has won.

Please don’t shut down totally. Have empathy for people who are isolated.

Every now and again, a stranger’s act of kindness has restored my faith in mankind. Recently, after shopping downtown and hanging my grocery bags on my walker, a young mom asked me, “Can I give you a ride home?”

Her kind gesture gave me hope.
