The world is weird. Well yes it is, not since 1918 have we seen a virus hunt for humans at such a level. We have always known that virus are out there lurking on the edges, but now it is war. We smart humans are not very well prepared for this event.
In history, the actions of past humans called for human or animal sacrifice to appease the gods and hope for change. Now we have science to give us answers, but do we listen to what science says and wash our hands? Or do we pray for the clouds to part and the voice from the sky to tell us we are saved.
This is a time where some people go into high gear and are saving lives as in the health professions. Truck driver, warehouse workers, food service workers and cashiers who we often do not think about are saving lives and keeping people from starving today and tomorrow. Are you grateful?
Some people are working from home and quarantine and this is quiet time away from the routine. How are you using this time? Are you drinking and binge watching TV or reading and taking up a new practice or skill?
And what of our actions? Did you go out and donate money, masks and gloves to medical staff and assist setting up a hospital or care center? Or did you buy a gun and horde your toilet paper and ammo to kill people in the near future?
I am not judging you, but I am asking you to think about your choices and decisions. These decisions forged in these times will be with you and affect your life.
