The loss of our precious treasure

The most significant loss from this virus won’t be the stock market value, jobs, or retirement accounts. That stuff is a temporary loss, and while painful and devastating – over time it’ll come back.

The most significant and irrecoverable loss will be our tribal elders who are the knowledge keepers in our communities and families. They will be the most valuable treasure we lose.

Over the coming months, a lot of older people are going to have moment when it’s touch and go for them. If they can make a life-saving shot, they’ll make it through, recover and live another day. Others won’t be so lucky.

Check on old people in your community. If you have elderly neighbors who live on their own, then knock on their door. Let them know you see them and you hear them.
