Don’t give worry a way in

These past couple of years, everyday people have become heroes: teachers, social workers, grocery clerks, health-care workers, farmers, neighbors. Their compassion has helped others deal with worry, or what one young boy described as “sad panic mode” (Tara Parker-Pope, “We Surveyed 1,320 Therapists, and the News Isn’t Good,”, December 12, 2021). 

When I hear of people surviving very unsettling events with their courage and love intact, I remember the story of Noah’s ark (see Genesis, chaps. 6–9). Noah was told by God to build a boat, or ark, and it took him, his family, and two of every kind of animal safely through a flood that covered the earth.
