I like the cool people. The ones who are kind. The ones who give space. They move gently. When they can — when they feel up to it — they look you in the eye and give you a smile as they walk past. But they also recognize when others can't do the same, and they say to themselves "That's OK." They listen. They read. They educate themselves. They share. They practice humility. They are reasonable. They acknowledge their privilege. They feel and express gratitude. They are discerning. Yep, I like the cool ones. And guess what? Plot twist: The cool ones were cool all along — pandemic or not.
