Virus vs You

Today we are held somewhat captive by Covid-19. We seem to have a few different mindsets here in the US. The OMG do not touch me and shut everything down group; the OK I will ride it out group and see what happens group and the ‘WHAT’ you can’t make me stay at home, I’ll do whatever I want group. Yes, there are variations to these groups of people.

I am not sure what group or what reasoning you are using but we will all go through this together and hopefully come out wiser and more grounded. Amazing how our own lives can change in a day or a week.

I am not going to bore you or scold you. I do not walk in your shoes. I have seen life through each and every disasters(hurricane, tornado, floods, blizzards) that we are a strong people. Love, patience and respect are main ingredients to making it through each event.

I am concerned about those who are homeless, living in domestic violence, elderly who maybe confined to there homes and the unemployed during these virus lockdowns. We slowly growing into a anti-socializing country. Do not get me wrong, there are millions of people who sacrifice hours and hours helping others.

There is a lot of negativity out in the world, more so in these times of covid-19 days/weeks. Fear seems to take over our thought processes. We get into the ME FIRST mode as well. Times of distress will test your character. In your mirror what does your character look like?

As I watch and/or listen to the NEWS I find conflicting reports. reports from Covid-19 is %100 contagious and deadly to ‘oh’ it is not much worst than catching any other type of Flu. in these times of television and internet access, how does one determine the Who, How, When and If factors of this flu?

I do not currently have any family with the virus. I do know people who have tested positive for the Covid-19 virus. The virus does not seem to discriminate by age, gender, race or region. The one thing that have noticed in these past weeks is that FEAR is charging on: sickness, death, job loss, and the government implementing changes into everything. I do not live in the fear category but I do exercise on the side of caution. My family and friends are dear to me and I try to do my part in staying healthy and safe.
