Monday Oct 18, 2021 – The first task when I get up and pour coffee on Monday morning is to sit down and write out the Monday morning blog post. Typically, I scan headlines and my FB newsfeed.
Today’s feed was a sad reminder that a) COVID is still killing people, even those who have been vaccinated, and b) that despite COVID, “…we think this lasts forever … it doesn’t; forgive, love and be good to one another.”
That quote was the last line in a post by Colorado Music Hall of Fame musician and educator Chris Daniels, informing us that veteran Kings bassist Kevin “Bro” Lege is in the ICU at St. Anthony’s, “…getting amazing care …but the outlook is not great.”
Chris didn’t indicate the reason for “Bro’s” condition, but we do know that former Secretary of State Colin Powell passed away last night from complications related to COVID.
As Chris Daniels reminds us, “…we think this lasts forever …it doesn’t; forgive, love and be good to one another.”
