Bright Spots of Boise – Chris & Kate


Bright Spot: a good thing that occurs during a bad or difficult time.

The coronavirus pandemic that is sweeping the globe is an extraordinarily strange and challenging time.  As we are shuttered in our homes, collectively concerned about our health, our finances and our neighbors, we are finding there are bright spots in this fundamental shift in how we relate to others and the world.

Right now our house is filled with seedlings and plant-starts. Chris is currently a candidate for the Idaho House of Representatives in D19.
“We’ve been heartened by the outpouring of support we’re seeing among strangers. We’ve seen people run to the grocery store for strangers. On NextDoor, we saw someone venmo some money to a stranger who realized, while in the checkout line, they didn’t quite have enough money. Our belief that deep down the vast majority of us are good people, who want to do right by others, is being reinforced.”
