Coronavirus Blues

No, I don't have it. Yes, I'll probably get it. No, I'm not hoarding TP. Yes, I have plenty of what I think I will need, including some frozen and canned food for in case I'm sick and don't want to shop or do much prep. I tried a "for pickup" grocery order to see how well it worked (so-so, but definitely an option). It's just the two of us at home, but we both work with other people, so it's as possible we'll get sick from friends as strangers. And we've both been inundated with COVID policies and procedures. I have mostly seen good stuff on social media - shares of "authentic" sites like the CDC and city/county giving out info on how to be as safe as you can, both for yourself and others. But now and then something politically motivated gets thrown in there. Someone wants one side or the other to be blamed for what's happening. It has to be a conspiracy. It's a foreign country's attempt to take over the world... But what it really is, is a chance for all of us to see if we're those guys in the movies running in different directions screaming and crying or trying to take everything, whether we need it or not, for ourselves, or using violence to make sure we're at the top of the food chain. I don't want to be one of those people. I want to be smart, careful, and kind. I want everyone to have what they need, and if I have that, be able to give them some of mine. I want to enjoy the sunshine (now that we finally have it), keep in touch with friends and family via social media, phone, e-mail, and, if it's safe for everyone, in person. Don't buy into the media hype. Get your information from solid sources. Trust, but verify. And please don't make this into a political issue. We're all in this together. The Coronavirus doesn't care which political party you belong to, what gender you identify with, what religion you belong to, or what color you are. So be careful. Be kind. Be fair. Be nice. And, most of all, be safe and keep everyone you love safe.
