Challenging the “new normal”

In the news these past months, we have been hearing the phrase “new normal” repeatedly. 

While it appears that events in recent months are establishing “new normals” for mankind—changes that threaten to alter lives forever—accepting limitations based on material conditions is not, in fact, new. Many accept as normal that children at the age of two will be “terrible.” Most also believe colds and/or allergies are normal for everyone. But even more subtle and hidden are the suggestions we more readily consent to regarding the advance of years. These suggestions often come to us through observation, conversation, and even the media.

We'd love to hear from you!
