The need to trust

By Mary Friedel-Hunt

I was putting eyedrops in my eyes, something I have done three times a day for a long time, and I suddenly wondered just how much I trusted the manufacturers of the eyedrops. Did they put the right ingredients in this bottle, and is it sterile? From there my mind traveled to a variety of places where trust in others abounds. We trust the pilot of our airplanes, our parents, the doctor treating us or a loved one, the man who installed the furnace, the drivers of all the cars around us on the roads, the chef who prepares our food at a restaurant, the midwife who delivers a baby, and more — so much more.

From there I moved in a bit closer to the heart of the matter. I trust those I love
