Listening to epidemiologists from all over the country the last several days, several points are salient: We are not “winning the COVID war”We are not near a vaccine for many months Further difficulties lie ahead. These points informed people can agree with.
So what are we to do? How about engaging in a pandemic of kindness? Overlooking slights from others, practicing extreme kindness, being generous to a fault. Do not practice social distance. Practice Physical Distance. Social distancing has very negative impacts. Reach out to others more frequently. Yes, you can sequester, but use your phone, your email, etc, and make calls to others. It will help them AND you. And most of all, recognize we are frail passengers on a frail planet, joined together by the love of God.
