Flattening the Curve

You know, and I know that a curve cannot be flat.

If it’s flat, it is not a curve.

Here we are doing the impossible.

Flattening a curve

Holding Hands by social distancing

Letting go of each other and calling each other constantly

I know more impossibilities are to come

We will be lonely and sick of each other

We will be learning and working on no things without work and school

We will stay home when we are sick

So many impossibilities are about to happen.

But God, you are impossible

You are 3 in 1, you are human and God, you are male and female

Help us to do the impossible too

Make the curve flat we pray

"Publisher after publisher turned down A Wrinkle in Time," L'Engle wrote, "because it deals overtly with the problem of evil, and it was too difficult for children, and was it a children's or an adult's book, anyhow?" The next year it won the prestigious John Newbery Medal. Tolkien states in the foreword to The Lord of the Rings that he disliked allegories and that the story was not one.[66] Instead he preferred what he termed "applicability", the freedom of the reader to interpret the work in the light of his or her own life and times.
