I watched with interest the news about the LA strike by school workers. I was surprised to hear that many of the workers were making less than $24,000 a year in California no less. It has not been that long ago when COVID hit and we grew to appreciate the unseen workers who help us survive and thrive every day. I’ve noticed that those memories are short. The LA school workers are but one example. Every one of God’s creatures has value, and the discrepancy in the value we place on so many is a crying shame.
PS: Dear friends ask that I address why they call the “conundrum between impermanence and attachment.” I have been giving it lots of thought. Before I write I’d like to hear your thoughts.
