    What a passage - thank you for posting.  This story reminded me of a piece of being-human that I forget - of how we give attention to each other when we don't have answers.  That quality of attention, of holding each other and the things we are scared or unsure of, is an amazing gift.  This story reminded me of times and people in my life who have shared that gift - and held me in their attention, when the unknown was overwhelming.  How fabulous it is, that as humans we have that ability to support each other and ourselves, in this way.  A good thing, too, given how much is still unknown!  :)  And, how exciting and human it makes us - to be able meet that together.
