We’re accommodating the restrictions and annoyances and dangers posed by Covid, as well as taking advantage of new opportunities and resilience. If you think about it for five seconds, there is no choice. And denying the truth, the obvious, is as effective as spitting into the wind. People who refuse to wear masks aren’t defiant.

Power comes with making the best of things, not defying or denying the truth.
