“The night will pass. Then we will have work to do.”
– Rumi (Persian Poet, 13th Century)
It seems that 800 years ago, they had their own dark times. And, then, when the night passed, they had “work to do,” too, just as we will. That is for certain, it’s just a matter of time. And – oddly – it is exciting in a certain way.
Exciting? When we emerge from this “darkness” around us – and we will – we will be wiser and stronger for the struggle we have faced. We will know more about ourselves, and what we need to do to ensure this darkness does not return. We and our children will be better able to deal with the next “darkness” we may face. What’s so exciting? It’s that we now have an opportunity like never before to reorder things into a better self, a better workplace, a better society and a better world. As for the employment relation, we may now address real issues of basic fairness in the relation, pay equity, wider participation, greater diversity and truer opportunity, as the darkness recedes, to set things up differently. The world without basic fairness, needless violence, offensive symbols and unmet basic health needs can’t but be a better place to live and prosper and raise children. I look forward to being a part of the “great work” that will need to get done, and I’m already preparing for that better day.
