It’s Easter Sunday 2021. I got my second dose of the Pfizer vaccine today at the Moscone Center and on my walk home, I happened to meander past Grace Cathedral on California St. in San Francisco. I’m not religious, and I can’t remember the last time I attended Easter Mass. Nonetheless, I was drawn to the towering golden doors of the Cathedral.
I walked up the steps and as I took in my surroundings I began to reflect on the Chapter we just lived through. Chapter with a capital “C”.
A Chapter that will be remembered for decades and even centuries to come as significant. A Chapter, that as my second dose begins to sore my arm, finally seems may come to a close.
As I peered up at the sacred structure, Cathedral bells chiming around me, I thought about how I am, by all accounts, one of the very lucky ones.
