So, here we are standing at the cusp of the “reopening strategy” for at least the corner of the world where I live, and already people are talking about the second coming of this virus.
We are just in the midst of trying to open things again and do so in a manner that doesn’t make people sick or kill them, and others are talking about the next bout of this virus.
We haven’t even finished dealing with this bout yet, and people are fretting about the next go round.
Almost all businesses have been affected. Scores of workers and average folks have taken a financial hit due to this current bout of this virus.
I understand that part of this is to remind people to keep doing all of the things, social distancing and the like, that we have been told to do.
It serves as a warning that if we don’t keep doing these things we will see this virus come back.
There are some people who are ready to run to the hills over this thing. I will admit that I have perused a few “survival items” online recently “just in case.”
It is quite scary and the outlook both, health-wise and fiscally, looks bleak and uncertain at best.
I have to hold onto the basic belief and understanding that this too shall pass. One way or another this virus will come and go.
Whatever damage both in the numbers of sick and dead and the economic fallout as a result of this thing will come.
Yet we as a people and yes society will remain here, simply because we will it to be. I for one refuse to accept the inevitability of our own destruction.
I despise the “road warrior” future and shall fight it with everything that I have. For we as a people and a species have not come as far as we have to be done in by a virus.
We will get through this and we will see daylight and happy days on the other side of this pandemic.
This too shall pass.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
