The COVID crisis throws into relief what happens when grief has—quite literally—nowhere to go. The evidence suggests that most people summon strengths that surpass their own expectations.

Interesting article but I really don't care for the political slant. After all, it would be difficult to find any politician on either side of the fence who isn't on the narcissistic spectrum.
My personal favorite example of that is Barrack Obama. Sure he has a lot of people snowed, but if you watch carefully at the annoyed look on his face when he doesn't get his way and just how good he is at devaluing and degrading comments (quote "bitter people of Pennsylvania who cling to their guns and religion", etc)you start to see that he is on the spectrum as well.
Again referencing back to the look on his face when he doesn't get his way, I have to admit it reminds me of the tv show Little House on the Prarie, when Nellie Oleson doesn't get her way about something. The narrowed eyes, the folded lips are all there. It's hard for me not to crack up when I see that look on Obama's face because it is exactly the same.
