Doing a 7-Minute Workout seemed a safe routine. Then she wrote: “But my liftoff was misaligned, so that coming down I glanced off the edge of my step stool and hit the floor with my full weight on the side of my left foot.

Surgeries can have long term consequences. An earthquake, or even a pandemic can show us that life changes in just a second. When I was a child in a Catholic school, the nuns never tired of telling us how lucky we were. Now I see it, we have free time to head ourselves to better places. We (Catholics) believe in Life Everlasting, in our given resurrection; this is what I mean by “better places”. Think of it as a new hope we have, attainable by loving people and God. Loving people means taking care of them by real actions. What else could we do with our free time?
