When I was growing up, one of the shows I liked to watch on TV was The Lone Ranger. It was a 30 minute American Western series and very popular at the time. Goodness always prevailed and invariably, at the end of every show, some grateful bystander could be heard saying, “who was that masked man?” as the Lone Ranger victoriously rode away on his horse.
It’s been interesting, to say the least, coming to terms with wearing a mask and seeing all of the different styles of masks that are being worn. A blue bandana has been my mask of choice. One of my brothers has chosen to go with red. This brother called to tell me that he’s always wanted to go into a bank with a bandana and sunglasses and now he can without even a second look! Fascinating.
I cannot help thinking that we are all lone rangers in our own way right now, each of us doing our part to protect one another. And it has to be our belief that goodness will ultimately prevail. In the TV show, the real identity of the Lone Ranger was never known. In our case however, at the end of this coronavirus nightmare, it will be with great joy that we unveil our masks, revealing to all our true identity: Club Greenwood Strong.
